Product Description

Battleship Potemkin is Jackson Del Rey's homage to director Sergei Eisenstein's classic silent film. The Battleship Potemkin was originally screened in Moscow in October of 1925. Eisenstein kept notes about what kind of music he wanted to see behind "Potemkin." To this end, Del Rey & The Sun Kings chose to blend classical instruments including live violins reminiscent of Samuel Barber, with nylon stringed guitars and rather cool trumpets (think Miles Davis) together with an "industrialized" background of purposefully synthetic sounding Tangerine Dream inspired keyboards and various rhythmic, mechanical samples (Morse code/echo sounder/machine press.) "Potemkin" also pays homage to several of Del Rey's favorite film composers, most notably Ennio Morricone and Jerry Goldsmith.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pre-Soviet Russian peoples' revolt April 26, 2014
Format:DVD
My experience with minor brand DVD companies (such as 1-2-3-4-GO!) has been satisfactory, as I'm not interested in commentary, deleted scenes or other bonus features, that is, stuff these discs don't offer. Transfers are "best available source" and quality can vary from very good to only fair.

The appeal of this particular silent film dub is its modernistic Jackson Del Rey score.

.
Sergei Eisenstein's BATTLESHIP POTEMKIN portrays an early event of the people's uprising of 1905-- an incident aboard a Tsarist battleship that turned deadly.

The ship's crew hung out several rotting sides of beef that had just been delivered as a way of protest, saying they wouldn't eat this wormy stuff anymore. When the medical officer examined the meat, he saw it was crawling but still said: "Those aren't worms... they're only maggots. Just wash them off with brine; the meat's perfectly fine."

The foul meat was prepared as soup that none of the enlisted men touched. Soon after, everyone was assembled on deck. The second officer in command said: "All who ate soup, step forward." Only ship's officers did so. The angry 2nd officer said he'd hang everyone else from the yardarm. Then he called for a firing squad of Marines. A tarpaulin was thrown over a large group of sailors standing on the quarterdeck, in preparation for execution.

One sailor who was further back rallied the other men. He stood on a bulkhead, pleading with the Marines to not kill their brothers. They lowered their weapons. This is when things got chaotic-- mutiny on a grand scale.
