9780415973656: The Cinema of Eisenstein

The Cinema of Eisenstein is David Bordwell's comprehensive analysis of the films of Sergei Eisenstein, arguably the key figure in the entire history of film. The director of such classics as Potemkin, Ivan the Terrible, October, Strike, and Alexander Nevsky, Eisenstein theorized montage, presented Soviet realism to the world, and mastered the concept of film epic. Comprehensive, authoritative, and illustrated throughout, this classic work deserves to be on the shelf of every serious student of cinema.

Review:

Sergei Eisenstein is arguably the most important single figure in the history of movies. He was certainly the most versatile. The director of the masterpieces Battleship Potemkin and Alexander Nevsky, Eisenstein also wrote ground-breaking essays on film art and taught classes on motion picture production. In this thoughtful, clear, and beautifully organized book, David Bordwell describes Eisenstein's development as a filmmaker, essayist, and teacher, demonstrating how each of his occupations comments upon and elucidates the other. Playing the role of Eisenstein's biographer, historian, interpreter, and critic, Bordwell has composed one of the clearest and most complete views available of this difficult but exciting genius.

From the Back Cover:

Eisenstein led a busy, dramatic life. His achievements and adventures merit far more detailed investigation than can be undertaken here. What is useful for the purposes of this book is an overall orientation to his career, a framework within which we can situate his films and theoretical writings.
