  1. dionysus67's rating of the film Alexander Nevsky

    Still unsurpassed in many respects heroic pageant coupled to propagandist load. Yet, to reduce this visual feast to propaganda is to miss the point, which lies not only in the ultimate and unavoidable truth of patriotic struggle against invasion but in the uncanny extreme close-ups of the Teutonic knights, their crimes, the operatic rhythm, the extended battle and the archetypal heroes, traitors and vanquished. Epic!

  2. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Alexander Nevsky

    Beyond my ken. Nikolai Cherkasov has formidable presence, however.

  3. THE APOLL0's rating of the film Alexander Nevsky

    It is in the dimension of the conflict of invasion that the film rises to greatness. Eisenstein predicting the Nazi atrocities in the war to come embodies them in the Crusaders. The crusaders dressed in white and on white horses are framed straight from Birth of a Nation. Unlike that work of evil, Eisenstein embodies them as faceless crab monsters. Lucas and Peter Jackson would latter reverse Eisenstein's reversal...

  4. Aardsy's rating of the film Alexander Nevsky

    Throw another baby on the fire.

  6. Gabriele Malagoli's rating of the film Alexander Nevsky

  7. Trevor L. Charles's rating of the film Alexander Nevsky

    That Battle of the Bastards episode of Game of Thrones owes a lot to this.

  8. Luca Di Gianni's rating of the film Alexander Nevsky

  9. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film Alexander Nevsky

    Eisenstein was making masterful revolutionary war epics decades before the rest of the world caught on. Stupendous visuals as per usual, almost like traveling back to soviet Russia but with a hint of cinematic surrealism.

  14. Hugo Poderoso's rating of the film Alexander Nevsky

    I would collect merchandising of this film (especially replicas of the helmets), and I love the before-the-batlle shots, musically composed.

  15. Kortirion's rating of the film Alexander Nevsky

    DEUS VULT. Great propaganda draws on the strength of its target people, rather than denying those of its enemies.

  16. SiIencio's rating of the film Alexander Nevsky

    Excellent cinematography, arguably the single feature that elevates this film. The battle scene is superb given the limitations of the time. The myriad of peasants and knights are delicately characterised and choreographed to give a very realistic feeling to the story. The film also strikes a cord for its accute insight into a perilous era, prelude of one of saddest episodes in XX century Russian history.

  17. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Alexander Nevsky

    What is up with those Germans? It's like they're the apotheosis of evil. Man! This is an incredible collaboration between masters of music and cinema. Is it ironic that Walt Disney, who inspired Eisenstein, was such an Anti-Semite? Weird!

  18. Hammer.K's rating of the film Alexander Nevsky

    Chouette musique de prokofiev composé pour le film, ce dernier est une grosse propagande pro-russe contre les allemands.

  19. Bram Vroonland's rating of the film Alexander Nevsky

    I didn't like this one as much as the Ivan the Terrible movies and of course Eisenstein's better known works. It is a little monotone. Things to pay attention too are the meticulous detail that has gone into the Teutonic faction. Their look and how they're set up on the set are both very well done.

  20. João Valadão's rating of the film Alexander Nevsky

    This film should first be evaluated for its cinematography. Its clear that patriotic and communist values dominate the screenplay, but I think that neither that nor the politic analogy to the relation between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union undermines the greatness of this production. Besides, Prokofiev amazing soundtrack and the richness of the wardrobe gives an iconic mark to this film.

  21. Heisenberg9383's rating of the film Alexander Nevsky

    Ein stalinistisches Propaganda-Machwerk übelster Natur!

  23. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film Alexander Nevsky

    My feelings for Alexandr Nevskiy are similar to those I have for a particular ex-girlfriend... No, I'm not on drugs!!

  24. pablo preciado's rating of the film Alexander Nevsky

    One word: Genius! Huge fan of Eisenstein, I think he has everything required to make the propagandistic films he wanted, or any other topic. Amazing!
