A dramatized account of a great Russian naval mutiny and the resultant public demonstration in support, which brought on a police massacre. The film had an incredible impact on the development of cinema and is a masterful example of montage editing.

WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?

Teddy Pierce Profile picture for Teddy Pierce

Perhaps the best known of the Soviet Montage films, created by perhaps the best known Soviet Montage filmmaker and philosopher. This film is an incredible cultural artifact of the early years of socialism in Russia, demonstrating how they disseminated propaganda and socialism ideals to a largely illiterate population.

Salon by Andrew O'Hehir

Battleship Potemkin is first and foremost an action drama, a work of straightforward emotion and pulse-quickening tension.
