Sergei Eisenstein, creator of such masterpieces as Battleship Potemkin and Ivan the Terrible, was one of the greatest film directors. He wrote his autobiography in 1946, two years before his death. Written in a style reminiscent of the brilliant visual effects of montage and dynamic progression that characterize the author's film-making technique, he describes his life in Russia at the time of the Revolution, his travels in the West and his encounters with the amazing medley of people from Garbo through to Joyce. 

Detalii Autor:

Sergei Mikhailovich Eisenstein was a Soviet film director and film theorist, a pioneer in the theory and practice of montage. He is noted in particular for his silent films Strike (1925), Battleship Potemkin (1925) and October (1928), as well as the historical epics Alexander Nevsky (1938) and Ivan the Terrible (1944, 1958). In its 2012 decennial poll, the magazine Sight & Sound named his Battleship Potemkin the 11th greatest movie of all time.

Eisenstein was among the earliest film theorists. He believed that editing could be used for more than just expounding a scene or moment, through a "linkage" of related images. He developed what he called "methods of montage":
1) Metric
2) Rhythmic
3) Tonal
4) Overtonal
5) Intellectual

Eisenstein's articles and books—particularly Film Form and The Film Sense—explain the significance of montage in detail. His writings and films have continued to have a major impact on subsequent filmmakers.
