Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

"The Battleship Potemkin," "By the Law," "Mother," "Earth," "Man With a Movie Camera," "Alexander Nevsky": Russia and the Soviet Union produced some of the greatest films the world has ever seen. Leyda has written a riveting history of the pioneers and artists who made these films. His acclaimed book tells the story of the industry that spawned them and the revolution that both inspired and crushed them.

Review

"Certainly the most important appraisal of Russian film ever made in book form."--Theatre Arts

"Exceedingly interesting, authoritative and well-documented."--The Times Literary Supplement

"The only work to give such a full and fluent survey of that great area of film production which has been both a stimulus and an enigma to the rest of the world."--The New York Times Book Review

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Hiram Gomez Pardo HALL OF FAME on December 16, 2005
Format: Paperback
Yesterday evening I received by mail a long and unexpected gift. A golden friend sent me a reproduction of this treasured book. And that 's why I just slept few hours tonight, reading here and there the invaluable and remarkable information around the development of the Russian Cinema.

Jay Leda -his author- worked untiringly during three years around the Schools and Cinematographic Soviet Studies. His tour de force allowed him to explore all the impressive amount of material, never released overseas, and obviously known works in the Western World. He made a vivid and authorized portrait of the artistic trajectory of different filmmakers and their works.

Kino is dedicated to any interested reader about the theme as well the specialist, it has been documented with statements of creators, critics and valuable illustrations, some of them never posted previously. It includes besides, a selected catalogue of premiered films between 1908 and 1958, with interesting details about directors, screenwriters, interpreters
and scenographers.

It is a must buy.

If you're looking for an analysis on Russian and Soviet film after 1960 - stay away.

This collection, by the (justly) renowned Jay Leyda, was published in 1960 and focuses primarily on 1860 - 1946, While the volume was updated later, it only includes a handful of new additions; Tarkovsky, Kalzatov, nor Shukshin are mentioned.
