The Battleship Potemkin (Enhanced Edition) is a beautiful 1925 silent film that has influenced every generation of filmmakers. Russian director Sergei Eisenstein was a pioneer in his exploration with the emotional impact of montage editing and other camera "tricks." His startling imagery and film techniques are still taught in cinema schools today. The film depicts the uprising on the Battleship Potemkin in 1905, a significant moment in the fight against the Tsarist regime. The film has five chapters, which illustrate the inhuman conditions of the ship's sailors that led to a mutiny. The regime responded with a massacre of Odessa citizens, which led to soldiers, sailors and citizens revolting. The episodes are entitled "Men and Maggots," "Drama at the Harbour," "A Dead Man Calls for Justice," "The Odessa Staircase" and "The Rendez-Vous with a Squadron." Eisenstein originally intended the film as propaganda, but the stirring imagery and gorgeous cinematography have lasted long after the politics have been forgotten.
