The October Revolution is really brought to life by Eisenstein's awesome cinematography, and the loyal sets and casting of war veterans, facilitated by proximity in time. Being lopsided Soviet propaganda, aimed to glorify a manufactured historical account, the film does get boring by some point.

Viewed August 7, 2016. Anthology Film Archives' blurb for this movie stated "'Intellectual cinema' starts here." Color me intrigued. This is likely the zenith of Eisenstein's theory of montage, a whirlwind of visual metaphors and striking ideas, so focused on the assemblage of its images that the title cards mostly just exist as historical context for more charged symbolism. It's a rousing portrait of revolution, and a key example of political & historical filmmaking. Of course, people hated it.

Showcases even more than his other 20's work(maybe) the importance of cinema as an art form/tool to craft a narrative. Probably the most important film maker??

has historical interest, but is otherwise dull and poorly structured and edited to such an extent that it is hard to discern what is happening unless you're familiar with the material. nowhere near eisenstein's other russian revolutionary films, battleship and strike.

First part of the film contains perhaps the best montage editing of all time, while the last hour is tiring in its accounts of historic events.

Extremely impersonal. Eisenstein apparently didn't yet believe in moderation. The montage and its pace are cranked up to 11.

Very powerful film, loved it. And Shostakovich's score fits perfectly - less can be said about the added sound effects though.

Some of this frantic editing in "Oktyabr" can really make your jaw drop (well, if you are still awake that is). Eisenstein once again makes a film that is both passionate and impersonal -its fiery propaganda can inflame even the uninitiated, while the lack of narrative focus puts them to sleep just as handily. The film is a classic and a colossal bore too -impressionistic, astoundingly made, but since I'm neither a critic nor a film historian, I think I'm entitled to the right of not loving it.

My largely ambivalent relationship with the work of Eisenstein continues here. On one level, the incessant and spirited cutting is dazzling to the eye, injecting life and vigor into this story of revolution. On the other, the film is blatantly manipulative, wearing its questionable political ideals on its sleeve, mocking the opposition and eliding the less savory details of the story the would add some much needed complexity to the proceedings.
