Primitive sound in an advanced subject
3 October 2004 | by (Halifax, NS) – See all my reviews

I am a great admirer of Pudovkin. People like to throw out the term "poetic film" to anything that doesn't always follow logically, but he understood emotion cinematic ally, not just visually or abstractly. Eisenstein's transition into sound required a total reevaluation of his intentions as a director, and it seems as if Pudovkin didn't recognize the need for this consideration. But this is still a worthwhile film, especially when seen after "Petersbourg." The layering of the political content is admirable for getting it's self-criticism past the censors. But yes, the sound is sloppy and the magic of his silents is audibly swept away. It would seem that he would also reevaluate his own intentions for his later sound films, and this may have been a necessary part of that development.
