Don't waste your time!
3 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

A truly dreadful non-documentary, non-autobiography. It consists of a very occasional three or four sentences from Eisenstein's autobiography, and visually is a mishmash of excerpts from films -- the vast majority not even by Eisenstein! "Ballet Mechanique" is in there, as in some extremely early hand-tinted film footage a la Melies (and perhaps it is Melies). Vertov's "Man With A Movie Camera" is in there, too, as is "Entr'Acte" by Rene Clair, etc. -- Of course, not ONE of these films is identified during the course of the film itself. No interviews, very, very little in the way of Eisenstein film footage. I'm glad I purchased my DVD copy used. Still, it's the worst $6 I ever spent.
