  1. Güven Şahinkanat's rating of the film Strike

    the western movies (some of them ) who imposed the idea that the indians were ''cannibals or brutal'' to world is not propaganda but this is a propaganda film ?! at 21st century's people are still taking shower with gov organized dogs' water cannon's pressured water for defending freedom and democracy on streets. According to your simple logic it is modernized propaganda action too. no !This is reality.

  5. Lintang A.'s rating of the film Strike

    One of the best debut in cinematic history.

  6. bagno's rating of the film Strike

  7. Fabio Osvaldo Carta's rating of the film Strike

  8. Marco Bevilacqua's rating of the film Strike

    A perfect example of what cinema can give to human perception, this film is not only full of astonishing images and compositions, but the editing techniques are used to perturb the viewer. Eisenstein has the ability to translate the fundamental meaning of communism into cinema. He gives dignity and value to proletarian society and ridicules capitalist power.

  9. Quattro's rating of the film Strike

    Hard to believe this to be a debut film. The pioneering editing, the perfect timing, the brilliant cinematography would suggest years of experience –a literal master-piece, not a beginner's work at all. Absolute control of the medium. The script is sometimes dull, but that's not the reason why you're watching this movie. Shame for the scene of the cow slauthering, a barbarity that has nothing to do with Art.

  10. fungus's rating of the film Strike

  11. mlstrx's rating of the film Strike

    was forced to watch this again. the character introduction/animal comparison sequence is still one of the worst things ever.

  12. Nuno Gonçalves's rating of the film Strike

    Such escalation of violence proves that the world history isn't just a carnival.

  13. Jeremiah Johnson's rating of the film Strike

    Groundbreaking montage(constructive) editing that had me perplexed. I wonder how the audience of 1925 Russia experienced when they watched this, cinema was on 20 years old.

  14. Dignan's rating of the film Strike

    The idea of a strike takes new meaning for me. Growing up, all I saw were opulent and bitchy teachers parading about with their shitty-made protest signs demanding more money and less hours for their overpaid, underworked asses.

  15. Tutu888's rating of the film Strike

    It's hard to get involved in Strike: the massa is de-humanized and the bourgeoisie consist only of caricatures. That's of course what the leaders of the Soviet-Union wanted to see. Although there are better films made than Strike (even in the silent era) there are few films that pushed the boundaries of filmmaking further.

  17. Onbestendig's rating of the film Strike

  18. Clay_Carter's rating of the film Strike

    Motion! The film is a chaotic churning, an ocean of workers. It is amazing how story can surface with only image, music and some title inserts. I am unsure of the exact historical context of the film other than what it portrays, though I loved how full of energy the film was from start to finish. The scenes in the rain were spectacular. The finale was unforgettable. The scale of the set piece is almost unbelievable.

  19. David R Williams's rating of the film Strike

    Those who believe that Potemkin was the beginning of Soviet art cinema need to watch this. Eisenstein's first full-length feature film and a true masterpiece in every sense of the word.

  20. Linn's rating of the film Strike

    I found Eisenstein's first major film much more relatable than the equally ingenious "Potemkin". Forceful pictures illustrate the violent suppression of a strike of factory workers for better working conditions. Eisenstein brought on a revolution in film making and in "Strike" this revolution is rendered comprehensible even for a modern audience.

  21. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Strike

    I think I saw Miss Mend.

  22. Richard Doyle's rating of the film Strike

    Eisenstein's first feature film is a fairly straightforward propaganda piece about the workers in a factory revolting against their owners and losing the fight tragically. While this may not be the most sophisticated film he made, like all of is work, it's lively, energetic and a superb example of political film making.

  23. Max Seqgar's rating of the film Strike

    Eistenteins' power of visual imagery exposed in a most dramatic "cookbook" for social strife. For a more detailed account of the multiple strikes (and corresponding massacres) that lead to the Bolshevik revolution vis-a-vis Rasputin, check out Elem Klimov's Agoniya!

  24. ihor's rating of the film Strike

    Dialectic cinema at some of its best. Eisenstein takes a rather conventional accessible story on the surface along with cinematography to compound it and make it into art.
