  1. Dogville59's rating of the film The Childhood of Maxim Gorky

    There are some hammy parts to this film so why give it a perfect score? Some of the beautiful sentimentality got to me and the quality and sharpness of the images is something for a 1938 film. As a film student I read Maxim Gorky's essay in which he saw cinema for the first time and wrote the famous line "last night I was in the kingdom of shadows". You can sense the reverence Russians have for Gorky in this film.
