The Battleship Potemkin

The Battleship Potemkin. 1925. Sergei Eisenstein

Nearly every movie you have ever seen has borrowed from this film. How can that be? Like so many of the great filmmakers (Resnais, Truffaut, Godard), Eisenstein was a film critic and theorist before picking up a camera. This film changed film.
