Battleship Potemkin Battleship Potemkin

Revolution is the only lawful, equal, effectual war. It was in Russia that this war was declared and begun.

A dramatized account of a great Russian naval mutiny and a resultant public demonstration, showing support, which brought on a police massacre. The film had an incredible impact on the development of cinema and is a masterful example of montage editing.
