Glumov's Diary ★★★

A film about critiques of ideologies (whether religious or political) used with great cinematography, editing techniques and cinematic manipulation subtly goes to show what Eisenstein would achieve later.

I heard it is based on Ostrovsky's play, which you can kind of tell with the obvious portrayal of vaudeville, considering it is only 4 minutes, I am quite interested to see what Eisenstein could've done more with this film if he could put the whole play ambitiously, especially with the comedic satires, which some we could see.

It goes to show how much more of Eisenstein's filmography I should see (I only seen Battleship Potemkin to date).
