    LET A WOMAN SELL SOME FUCKING COKES, YOU JERKS!

    So, it's been a week since I watched this (after FINALLY breaking down and re-activating my Fandor account) and while I have been busy it's been hard for me to think of something I specifically have to say in this case. Generally, I suppose I think it's good although I balk at the…

As I've mentioned in several previous reviews, I did take a film class in undergrad and our Soviet Montage feature was The Battleship Potemkin. The film was a masterclass of editing, and a particular joy after we watched the first half of…
