  1. Brotherdeacon's rating of the film Deserter

    Curiously, there can be instances like Deserter in which Soviet films and Biblical parables seem interchangeable, both like to place the camera at the hero's feet and shoot upward as if in the humble salutation of a child or pet (this at the apogee of Gulag crimes). Although mostly I do find that the technical work in this Pudovkin title is again very impressive, if a touch repetitive.

  2. Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film Deserter

    One of the most extraordinary early sound films. Too bad all that incredible experimentation is at the service of a rather tired propaganda flick, but my what a soundtrack!

  3. wpqx's rating of the film Deserter

    Loved the montage, but felt the film was a bit of a mess at certain parts.
