This book collects the massive number of autobiographical manuscripts Sergei Eisenstein left behind. They are revelatory, uneven, riveting, frustrating, sublime. Eisenstein is a major figure of the international cinema, having created The Battleship Potemkin, October, and Alexander Nevsky. He is also the Plato of film theorists. There is no idea mentioned in film writing that Eisenstein did not think of first. This book provides unique insight into the great man's psyche, streams of his consciousness, meditations on cinema and self that pulse in the mind like flashes of lightning.About the Author:
