Eisenstein-Sound Years
$44.59
Eisenstein-Sound Years
Sergei Eisenstein, long regarded as a pioneer of film art, changed cinematic strategies halfway through his career. Returning from Hollywood and Mexico in the late 1930s, he found that the potential of the Soviet Revolution had devolved into totalitarianism and Stalin s ever-tightening rule demanded that future Eisenstein projects be works of propaganda. Leaving behind the densely edited, montage style of celebrated silents like Battleship Potemkin and October, Eisenstein turned to historical sources, grandiose scores, contradictory audiovisuals, and theatrical sets for his work in the sound era. This trio of rousing action epics reveals a deeply unsettling portrait of the Soviet Union under Stalin, and also provide battle scene blueprints for filmmaking giants from Laurence Olivier (in Henry V) to Akira Kurosawa (in Seven Samurai). The Criterion Collection is proud to present Alexander Nevsky and Ivan The Terrible, parts I and II, in a Special Edition three-disc box set. Alexander Nevsky (1938, 108 minutes) Eisenstein drew on history, Russian folk narratives and the techniques of Walt Disney to create this epic tale of Teutonic knights vanquished by Prince Alexander Nevsky s tactical brilliance. Widely imitated, the Battle on the Ice scene remains one of the most famous audio-visual experiments in film history, perfectly blending action with the rousing score of Sergei Prokofiev. Ivan The Terrible Part 1 and 2 Eisenstein filmed two parts of his planned trilogy on the troubled 16th-century Tsar who united Russia. Visually stunning and powerfully acted, Ivan The Terrible charts the rise to power and descent into madness of, essentially, a dictator. Though pleased with the first installment, Stalin detected the portrait in the second film with its summary and secret police promptly banned it. Part 1 (1945, 99 minutes) Part 2 (1958, 85 minutes)
