Ivan Groznyy I

Sergei Eisenstein Sovjetunionen, 1944

Hugo Poderoso's rating of the film Ivan den Grusomme

The tsar exhorts a crowd of shadows. People crouch, turn their back or bend when plotting. The rulers' kiss is matched by the image of goblets clashing in a toast. Marching armies form long, curved strokes in the long frame. Kurbsky's resentment grows under a twisted background of arrowed bodies. Skuratov's attentive eye becomes the eye of a mural Christ.
