DISC 1 - BATTLESHIP POTEMKIN: Odessa - 1905. Enraged with the deplorable conditions on board the armored cruiser Potemkin, the ship's loyal crew contemplates the unthinkable - mutiny. Seizing control of the Potemkin and raising the red flag of revolution, the sailors' revolt becomes the rallying point for a Russian populace ground under the boot heels of the Czar's Cossacks. When ruthless White Russian cavalry arrives to crush the rebellion on the sandstone Odessa Steps, the most famous and most quoted film sequence in cinema history is born. SPECIAL FEATURES: ''Tracing Battleship Potemkin,'' a 42-minute documentary on the making and restoration of the film, The restored film with newly-translated English intertitles, The restored film with original Russian intertitles (and optional English subtitles), The original 1926 Edmund Meisel score, performed by the Deutsches Filmorchestra (presented in DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1), Photo galleries

DISC 2 - STRIKE: The first feature film by the director of Battleship Potemkin, Sergei Eisenstein's STRIKE is a visual tour-de-force that employs dynamic editing and experimental camerawork to dramatize the saga of a bitterly-fought factory strike in 1903. Often compared to Citizen Kane in terms of audacious directorial debuts, STRIKE embodies the revolutionary spirit of the Soviet people of the 1920s, cresting the waves of artistic and political idealism. This edition of STRIKE was mastered in HD from a 35mm film element restored by the Cinematheque de Toulouse, with a newly-recorded score by the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra, adapted largely from the works of traditional Russian composers. SPECIAL FEATURES: GLUMOV'S DIARY (1923, 4 min.) For years considered lost, Eisenstein's first film is a playful experimental short made for his stage production of Alexander Ostrovsky's Enough Stupidity in Every Wise Man, EISENSTEIN AND THE REVOLUTIONARY SPIRIT (2008, 37 min.) Film historian Natacha Laurent places Eisenstein's work in the context of the Communist Revolution and contemporary Soviet filmmaking.

This double bluray set includes "The Battleship Potemkin" and "Strike" at a cheaper price than buying " Battleship Potemkin" alone.Orson Wells was influenced by these movies and "Citizen Kane" has many "ideas" redone for it's visuals.Sergei Eisenstein was a true artist and really has influenced many directors style.If you like German impressionisic early cinema,you'll love this.If you are a film student,you'll learn alot from viewing these great old movies.

You have to see it to believe it. Outstanding restoration on two silent gems by Sergei Eisenstein, the great Soviet director. It's believed that Senator Joe McCarthy was pychologically-terrified by Eisenstein and his films up until his dying day (which, by the way, came about two BEFORE Eistenstein's equally same early death; Eisenstein of a heart attack while directing a film at 50, and McCarthy of suspected alcoholism at 48.)

Enjoy both films, which ultimately celebrate the themes of labor and worker's rights.
