Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Strike (1925)

Directed by Sergei M. Eisenstein

Starring Grigori Aleksandrov, Maksim Shtraukh, Mikhail Gomorov, I. Ivanov


Fast cuts, but still very long and boring. Thank God it was projected at 24 fps, cuz at 16 fps I wouldn’t have been able to take it. The silence didn’t help, either. Unfortunately, I was able to stay awake for the nauseating cow slaughtering at the end. It was the single most disgusting scene I have ever seen in a movie. The film joins Apocalypse Now in the Cattle Mutilation Club.
