Ten Days That Shook the World

Also known as October, this was Eisenstein's first film after his masterpiece, Battleship Potemkin. It's pure propaganda, which isn't surprising but the editing and montage in October are not nearly as dynamic or interesting as in a few of his other films. There are a couple of scenes where his masterful crowd direction remind us of the great things he could do.
