Commissioned as a propaganda film to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Russian Revolution, October is another of Eisenstein’s brilliant experiments in film structure and cinematic language. The film introduced the concept of ‘intellectual montage,’ juxtaposing disconnected images to draw comparisons. His use of montage also delivers the explosive spirit of revolt and resistance in St. Petersburg, leading up to the Bolshevik revolution. Using non-professional actors throughout, the film is considered an ambitious historical epic and powerful tribute to Eisenstein’s creativity and artistry. Silent film with English intertitles.
