Eisenstein was one of the first people to think deeply about film and the film process. His ideas still apply.

One of the most ambitious projects on cinema ever written!

The impressive erudition and untiring process of investigation of Eisenstein is carved in relief in this priceless book.

Tough but interesting…

Though no book will make you a filmmaker, some will help you refine your vision. This book, for me, added some poetry and texture to the imagery already in my mind. Pretty much the only thing that will improve your film skills, is making them.

A must read for all filmmakers, The basis of all great films

Eisenstein thoughts on montage and how the mind interpets film is invaluable when creating films of one’s own. Read the book 3 times to learn it for the first.
