I just finished watching "Strike" by Sergei Eisenstein. It's a Russian silent film made in 1924.

My jaw dropped many times. It does have those hokey silent film moments, but it also has a lot of scenes that just had me captivated. It's amazing how much not worrying about the mic allowed for consistently wider shots. And becuase the was very deep, the frame (which looked 3:4, yes it was taller than it was wide) was usually filled with very interesting action/composition.

It was just remarkable to see, IMVHO.

I'm a huge Eisenstein fan. October and Alexander Nevsky have always been my favorite.
