  1. Hello. I’ve watched this with the sound off and instead playing the EMI/Warner Music Group album “Battleship Potemkin” (Tennant/Lowe and Dresdner Sinfoniker conducted by Jonathan Stockhammer, orchestrations by Torsten Rasch 2005; Tennant and Lowe forming the duo Pet Shop Boys), which was amazing as I somewhat foresaw, being a Pet Shop Boys fan. If you try this, you will find out you can synchronize the music at track three, ‘Our daily bread’, where the dishwasher smashes the plate on the ground, as the track produces a sound of broken porcelain. Have fun!

    Powerful propaganda. Magnificent movie.
    I wrote a review at IMDb titled “What’s black and white and Red all over?”
    Bearing in mind, director Eisenstein had the resources of the Soviet dictatorship at his disposal, so he was able to use large crowds as well as the Soviet navy.
    Although some of his editing — and Eisenstein was his own editor, and an absolute master of it — was a bit obviously propagandistic, the overall effect is, to repeat, powerful.
    Though I completely and totally oppose all forms of collectivism and coercion, I sit in open-mouthed awe at the magnificence of “Battleship Potemkin.” And I highly recommend it to everyone, especially students of film history.
    The comment from Pieter regarding his use of music intrigues me, and I thank him for the idea. Apparently the movie has been issued and re-issued several times and with many different scores.
    The one I recommend is the re-scored and supplemented original, released about 10 years after the premiere.
