Sergei Eisenstein Unione Sovietica, 1925

Marco Bevilacqua's rating of the film Sciopero

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.
