Battleship Potemkin

 (1925)

Battleship Potemkin Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Odessa, 1905. Enraged with the deplorable conditions on board the armored cruiser Potemkin and raising the red flag of revolution, the sailors' revolt becomes the rallying point for a Russian populace ground under the boot hells 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.

Battleship Potemkin Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

After years of sub-par, public domain copies cobbled together from sliced up source prints and damaged, washed-out elements, Kino International's 1080p/AVC-encoded Blu-ray presentation of Battleship Potemkin's 2005 refurbishment is nothing short of astounding. To begin with, this is now the definitive edition of the film—Eisenstein's 146 intertitles have been restored to his specifications, along with all of the material that was cut by German censors in 1926 and 1928. What we get here, according to the liner notes in the included booklet, is "a version that is as close to its director's intentions as it is ever likely to be." I've had the pleasure of reviewing two other silent classics on Blu-ray—Kino's release of Buster Keaton's The General and U.K. imprint Masters of Cinema's restoration of F.W. Murnau's City Girl —and with each I've been amazed by the level of detail to be found in the 80-some year old films. That feeling certainly carries over to Battleship Potemkin.

The print does show evidence of decades of wear and tear—vertical scratches, white specks, small pieces of debris clinging to the edges of the frame—but this is to be expected, and I applaud the restoration team for not going overboard, so to speak, in trying to digitally remove age-related damage. In fact, I don't see any manipulation here at all. The grain structure is natural, and I didn't spot any signs of edge enhancement or other post-telecine tweaks. As you'd hope, clarity receives a titanic upgrade from prior DVD releases. Close-ups reveal skin texture and other fine details—like the brushed gunmetal on the ship's cannons—and the longer shots of extras fleeing down the Odessa Steps are impressively resolved. The black and white gradation is equally striking, with deep blacks, never overblown whites, and strong shadow delineation. You'll notice some brightness flickering from time to time, but this is inherent in the film technology of the time, not a transfer-related issue. There are two versions of the film contained on the 50 GB disc —one with the original Russian intertitles, the other with English title cards—and aside from the obvious differences, both look identical. In short, this release of Battleship Potemkin is the most complete, most visually impressive presentation the film has received since its 1925 Bolshoi premiere. Kino, Filmmuseum Berlin-Deutsche Kinematek, and the British Film Institute should be proud of, and praised for, their efforts.


Battleship Potemkin Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

For the film's Moscow premier, Battleship Potemkin was accompanied by a kind of temp track, a "hastily assembled pastiche of pre-existing orchestral cues," as New York Sun film critic Bruce Bennett explains in his liner notes. For the debut in Berlin, Eisenstein hired composer Edmund Meisel to write a proper score—"I told Meisel I wanted the score to be rhythm, rhythm, and above all pure rhythm," wrote the director—and Meisel's compositions have been reproduced here in a new performance by conductor Helmut Imig and the 55-piece Deutsches Filmorchestra Babelsberg. As I wrote in my review for City Girl—who's original score had been lost to time —I was less than impressed by the new music that had been commissioned for Murnau's film, which seemed to overshadow rather than complement the subtlety of the story's emotion. It's good, then, to hear Battleship Potemkin as it was originally intended—or, at least, as close to the original intent as is possible. The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track sounds excellent, with frantic strings, rich horns, and a propulsive quality that underscores the film perfectly. Dynamically, the track is detailed and expansive, and the music has been worked pleasingly into the rear speakers to create a more involving mix. Crank up the volume and you'll feel like you're sitting down in the orchestra pit.
