May have been Eisenstein's best film
27 April 2001 | by (Saint Paul, MN) – See all my reviews

You can find the reconstruction of this film on the Criterion released Alexander Nevsky DVD. The photography is absolutely amazing, and, although the story is a bit confusing in the reconstruction, the mood is preserved fiercely by the photography and the added music (by Prokofiev, Eisenstein's later collaborator). Around 25 minutes long, even this reconstruction proves to be a masterpiece. Too bad we don't have a whole.
