Trade PB (B&W photographs) "Among early directors, Sergei Eisenstein stands alone as the maker of a fully historical cinema. [The author] treats issues of revolutionary history and historical representation as central to an understanding of Eisenstein's work, which explores two movements within Soviet history and consciousness: the Bolshevik Revolution and the Stalinist state. Goodwin articulates intersections between Eisenstein's ideas and aspects of the thought of Walter Benjamin, Georg Lukács, Ernst Bloch, and Bertolt Brecht. He also shows how the formal properties and filmic techniques of each work reveal perspectives on history. Individual chapters focus on STRIKE, BATTLESHIP POTEMKIN, OCTOBER, OLD AND NEW, projects of the 1930s, ALEXANDER NEVSKY, and IVAN THE TERRIBLE." . (Inventory #: 24024)
