Movie Info

A biographical drama about the life of great Russian filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein), Eisenstein stars Simon McBurney as its eponymous protagonist. Beginning in 1922, when the young Eisenstein, a former Red Army engineer, became the protégé of avant-garde theatre director Meyerhold (Jonathan Hyde), the film covers Eisenstein's life, work, and political struggles through three decades, set in such disparate locales as the Ukraine and Mexico. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (4)

  • If you're content with a clever pseudo-bio that manages to have a good time as it doles out pieces of the famous director's life, Eisenstein delivers.

    August 22, 2002 | Rating: 3/4
  • Fudges fact and fancy with such confidence that we feel as if we're seeing something purer than the real thing.

  • Best enjoyed as a work of fiction inspired by real-life events. Those seeking a definitive account of Eisenstein's life would do better elsewhere.

    January 2, 2002 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • Bartlett's hero remains a reactive cipher, when opening the man's head and heart is the only imaginable reason for the film to be made.

    January 2, 2002
  • Fueled by Mr. McBurney's incandescent performance, it is a portrait of the artist as political and spiritual renegade.
