The Incredible Suit's Serious Film Criticism Series - Part 1: "The Father Of Montage", Sergei Eisenstein

LOOK AT HIS HAIR!! Brilliant.


  1. Eizenstein was to film directing what Einstein was to theoretical physics. They both liked sticking their fingers in live light sockets.

    Forget tracks and cranes. As far as I can remember (I may be wrong here. It was in the late 60s that I last saw one of his films.) Eizenstein did not even care to pan or tilt his camera. The action all happened within the static frames and he relied on editing to tell the story.
