Review:

The theory of "montage" or editing, developed by early Soviet filmmakers, reached its deepest expression in the writings of Sergeii Eisenstein, undeniably the most profound theorist of film art. This book contains the clearest and most accessible introduction to his ideas about the cinema. Eisenstein, who directed "The Battleship Potemkin" and "Alexander Nevsky," was a master propagandist as well as a superb filmmaker. In this book, he argues passionately that these two crafts are closely related.

About the Author:

Sergei Mikhailovich Eisenstein, who was born in Riga in 1898, first achieved world fame with his silent film Potemkin in 1925. Although he completed only six films before his death in 1948, he is considered one of the most influential filmmakers and film theoreticians of our time.
