  3. Jeremiah Johnson's rating of the film Storm Over Asia

    Its not a bolshevik film if it doesn't slander the capitalist or religion and in this case it happens to be Buddhism. Which surprised me a little. Were the Mongols considered in the Soviet system as presented here? Or just pure propaganda.

  4. RoRoRoro's rating of the film Storm Over Asia

    5/10 (version de 2h07) à voir la version de 1h16, la vraie quoi!

  5. Dmytro Zheludenko's rating of the film Storm Over Asia

    Can`t find any info about music score. It`s really amazing!

  6. Hugo Poderoso's rating of the film Storm Over Asia

    There's an episode which joins beautifully the face and the landscape. Then there's a mock on religion that at the same time seems fascinated with its rituals. Finally, some of the weirdest alternate editing sequences I've seen precede a "clockwork-orangey" political satiral. The culmination of it all is a leap from specific action to abstract historical force. Amazing.

  7. Dominic Rainsford's rating of the film Storm Over Asia

    Ethnographically fascinating; politically weird. Intense central performance, and some very good supporting ones. Grown-up by comparison with, say, D. W. Griffith.

  8. Roman's rating of the film Storm Over Asia

    The Greatest movie of 20th century! Nothing change after 100 years in our world)

  9. EdieEmm's rating of the film Storm Over Asia

    "O, my People! Rise in your ancient strength and free yourself!" Glorious, if historically imaginative, piece of Soviet cinema. Every shot is spectacular, as are the powerful, occasionally even scathing, montages, and brilliant, gut-punching imagery. Plus beautiful footage of early 20th century Mongolia. Death to the capitalist, imperialist pig-dogs!

  10. msmichel's rating of the film Storm Over Asia

    Essential silent cinema from director Vsevolod Pudovkin that stands as a testament to early Soviet cinema and near rivals Eisenstein with its use of editing technique. Memorable cinematography from Anatoli Golovnya with many striking images and impressive scope. An under sung gem

  11. ArmandS's rating of the film Storm Over Asia

    While it takes some time, the denouement is worth it, both for the way it wraps up the story and the compelling editing and style of it all in the end. Seeing it for the first time, it's actually kind of mind-blowing. And for a silent film, it has one of the best lines that still reflects on our current history in its various facets: "We are training the soul of our future leader." Sounds familiar.
