Ivan the Terrible Part I


Dir. Sergei Eisenstein (1944).
Sergei Eisenstein began his career cursing The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and ended up making one of the most brilliantly expressionist movies of all—a stylized period piece about Russia’s medieval czar with discomfiting parallels to its then current one, Joseph Stalin.
