Synopsis

Visually stunning and powerfully acted, Ivan the Terrible charts the rise to power and descent into terror of this veritable dictator. Finished in 1946, it was banned by Stalin because it depicted state terrorism at the hands of a mad Ivan. Not released until 1958, 10 years after Eisenstein’s death.
