Quite a bold leap from Eisenstein, certain to convey empowering thoughts to those oppressed. It was of no surprise to learn from the accompanying documentary that it was censored by the dictators of the period, as they undoubtedly viewed it as inciting dissidence... Frankly, I'm shocked that the fascists even allowed it to see the light of day (or the dark of theaters).

This is by far the greatest silent movie film I have seen. Yes, it is the first one I have seen, but I wonder if I'll see anyone as good as this, if not-then this is my signature for recommendation to all who want to see a good silent film by Sergei Eisenstein! :D
I also want to advocate the Music (and yes) that's all there was in the movie if you don't count the Russian context , and translation on the same page, but it made the movie a lot more moving and innovating to me, and did I forget to mention epic as well ?! :) 5/5 Stars from me! ;)

For 8 decades, Sergei Eisenstein's 1925 masterpiece has remained the most influential silent film of all time.
Each successive gerenation has, however, seen "Battleship Potemkin" subjecyed to censorship and recutting.
Accordingly, its unforgettable power diluted in unauthorized public domain editions from dubious sources.
Kino International of New York joined German and Russian Production companies in presenting this new restoration of "Battleship Potemkin."
DISC ONE includes "Tracing Battleship Potemkin"---a 42-minute documentary on the making and restoration of the film.
This documentary is quite informative and interesting.

Sailor (of the rotten meat he and his shipmates are forced to consume): "It could crawl overboard on its own!" Dr. Smirnov (inspecting the putrid meat): "These aren't worms! They are dead fly larvae. You can wash them off with brine!"
