Savage Junctures provides fresh insights into Eisenstein's films and writings. It examines the multiple contexts within which his films evolved and Eisenstein's appropriation of world cultures as his sources. Nesbet focuses on the possibilities of visual image making and each chapter addresses the problem of his image-based thinking from a different perspective. Each chapter also offers a fundamentally new interpretation of the films and writings that make up his oeuvre. This is a major new contribution to studies in Soviet cinema and culture and to the field of film studies.

Anne Nesbet is Assistant Professor in the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures and in the Program in Film at the University of California, Berkeley.
MLR, 100.2, 2005. Reviewed by Amy Sargeant - "... a sympathetic yet incisive companion... Nesbet's exemplary appraisal is to be thoroughly recommended". 'On the front cover...the publisher claims that each chapter "offers a fundamentally new interpretation on the films and writing that make up his oeuvre". Words like these are gefundenes Fressen for stingy critics because they are so difficult to live up to. What is fascinating in Nesbet's book, however, is that she fulfils these promises, not only because of her persistent work in Russian archives... but also thanks to her intelligence and creativity in detecting and outlining such resources...' 'The different chapters of Nesbet's book deal with interesting aspects of Eisenstein's works in novel and inspiring ways.'Film International, Issue 18 2005
