Movie Reviews

Eisenstein's best - with a great new score!
Hoffmann the Organizer | 10/30/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've been watching and enjoying Eisenstein for ages, but watched "Strike" only recently (at the recommendation of my SEIU union president, no less). Strike is a truly revolutionary film -- as art and entertainment, as well as politics. While Eisenstein could always succeed at these three levels, his films became more and more "conservative" over time, more ponderous, more conventional, more obsessed with power. This first film is full of energy and surprises -- company spies you can't help liking for their comical antics; agents-provocateurs you admire for their theatricality; dream sequences on a par with Twin Peaks. But it also tells the story of a strike with all the power and clarity of the best labor movies (e.g. Norma Rae), yet on a bigger, more brutal scale. The Alloy Orchestra provides a score that equals the epic panoramas of the factories, tenements, and intense conflict. They cover Eisenstein's emotional range from the hilarious to the devastating. One of my top ten."
