Eisenstein spent a lot of time thinking about the uses and implications of montage. Let’s have a look at his five kinds of montage.

METRIC MONTAGE:

TONAL MONTAGE

RHYTHMIC MONTAGE:

OVERTONAL MONTAGE

INTELLECTUAL MONTAGE

To kick off a month of classic Russian film, we sink our teeth into Sergei Einstein;  the Grandfather of modern montage. Today’s mash-ups and dub jobs can find their roots among a handful of Russian filmmakers who could not always afford the production costs of filming and instead went through the archives and told new stories that are celebrated and respected today. We will bring you much more on this subject throughout the month but for now enjoy Autobiography, a film about Eisenstein that is somewhat dishonest with its title.

Here’s another one from AmyWamie. Check out more of her slick flicks here at her you tube site.

Perhaps the strangest episode from the original Outer Limits.
