  1. FISCHER's rating of the film The New Babylon

    Réalisé en huit étonnants tableaux avec comme thème central et fédérateurs les événements de la Commune de Paris, un film inoubliable d'une grande beauté plastique et d'un enthousiasme continu qui ne répugne nullement à s'immerger dans le baroque et le grotesque, d'une générosité indéniable et nimbé d'un authentique esprit révolutionnaire. www.cinefiches.com

  2. Jugu Abraham's rating of the film The New Babylon

    One of best silent films ever. Rarely seen. It "disappeared" and has resurfaced after Kozintsev died. My detailed review of the great film is at http://moviessansfrontiers.blogspot.in/2016/09/196-russian-director-duo-grigory.html

  5. Hugo Poderoso's rating of the film The New Babylon

    Soviet montage adopting some Hollywood melodrama cinematography

  6. εξώτερο Διάστημα's rating of the film The New Babylon

    A film that takes literary stylistic devices & visually translates them: antanaclasis (clusters of key images rhythmically replayed in different, contrary ways; New Babylon is a general store, a place of corruption with everything on sale, the post-uprisal failure), polyptoton (variations on the ‘master’ theme), epistrophe ("That’s what the Commune promised!"), anaphora (cyclical calls to end shifting enemies'lives),

  8. Arcanus's rating of the film The New Babylon

    Interesting to see what sort of films were made in Soviet Russia at that time. The music by Shostakovich is fabulous. Buy the Music CD, not the DVD!

  9. chanandre's rating of the film The New Babylon

    Truly mind-blowing. An enormous masterpiece. A lesson in editing. One of the best silent films I have ever seen.
