'I lived, I contemplated, I admired'- Eisenstein 1944.
Eisenstein has become a myth. He has been acclaimed as a genius, as the greatest film-maker of all times, as the maker of the greatest film of all time, and as one of the great philosophers of art of our century. More has been written about him than about any other film director and he himself wrote more than any other film director both about his own work and about cinema as a medium and as an art form.
