I guess it doesn't quite have the novelty that the first part did for me, but it's still a triumph of formal modes of expression used to their fullest effect in the service of an otherwise uncomplicated story. Together, I think these films constitute the height of Eisenstein's accomplishment, and it's a crying shame that he was prevented by Stalin from completing the third part.

What i said about part one, except possibly even more so? Although if anything, this feels like nothing so much as an extension of the former (am i the only one who felt like this was actually way too short?) The color sequences are sort of a revelation in and of themselves, and this feels a bit more character-based and dramatically looser than Part One. I can't think of another filmmaker offhand, outside of Malick or maybe Bresson, who can make a dolly-in feel like a phenomenological event.

Preferable to part one simply because it's lighter and looser. There's a playfulness to some shots that I haven't seen anywhere else, and even if that virtuosity is suppossed to accentuate the drama, the impact is mainly one of delight in cinema. The "content" plays a purely formal role.

If part 1 was a good fit among those films like Potemkin which might uncharitably be called "national propaganda films", part 2 seems much more Shakespearean. Ivan becomes a much more flawed (though still impressive) character, and the power struggle between his court and the clergy is fascinating. There's suspense, tragedy and justice (of a sort). The ending scene is the only part that doesn't do the film justice, setting up a third part which will never be.

The first part is horribly inflated by nearly unanimous praise from critics and film aficionados alike, this one has been treated equally. My distaste for this movie, however, equals the previous. It's boring and people are using their eyebrows as props, that does not make a good movie. The only thing I like here is the completely irrelevant color sequence to break up the tedium.

Eisenstein has a clear eye for composition, making the various shots engaging in and of themselves. The problem comes for me in the way those shots have been put together, as the montage approach becomes terribly(!) constraining. Eisenstein is certainly the forerunner of the modern blockbuster, with its emphasis on short shots and creating interest through continuous edits. The shots themselves are gorgeous and terrifying--I just wish I had more time to look at each of them.

It's just amazing how many levels this film works on - the fascist influence, operatic/expressionist flavor, Eisenstein's own subversion of Stalin, the intricate mise-en-scène, and constant symbolism. I haven't even mentioned the actual story, and there's probably even more. I am completely floored by Eisenstein (finally).

Not a good movie to watch when you're sleepy, despite being only 85 minutes long. This continues Eisenstein's meditation on the shape of Ivan's beard, the geometry of costumes, and the mysticism of the authoritarian ruler who is one with the land. It almost sounds a little like Hero, except without all the ass-kicking.
