Like CITIZEN KANE and BREATHLESS, BATTLESHIP POTEMKIN is one of those groundbreaking classics that never gets old, retaining its freshness and excitement in viewing after viewing. Eisenstein's brilliant editing and compositional strategies prove the perfect vehicle for this dynamic, emotionally riveting recreation of the 1905 naval mutiny that erupted into a widespread uprising, foreshadowing the 1917 revolution. Silent film with prerecorded music score (Edmund Meisel). DCP digital. (MR)
