    "Long live the Provisional Government." You just gotta say, "Hmm, isn't that kinda of an oxymoron?" 6 years ago

    Easily the least engaging Eisenstein film I've seen thus far. Nothing remotely world-shaking takes place until three-quarters of the runtime has elapsed, and by then I was thoroughly detached from the proceedings. Unlike the superior Strike, I actually think Eisenstein's trademark skill and stylistic flourishes were counterproductive here, distracting from and diminishing the impact of the story. Perhaps if I was more steeped in knowledge of the time and place in question (as the film clearly assumes this of the viewer) it would resonate with me more, but I lost track of the various factions and faces. History hasn't felt so cold and impersonal since my class in 9th grade, where only my daydreams about the girl sitting at the desk behind me shook my world. 10 months ago

    Restored version with optional English or French subtitles available here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qzGWtXFa018
    Subtitles show up way too early, though.
