Example text

The quarrel reached its public apex in January of 1925, as V Pletnev, on behalf of the Executive Committee of the Moscow Proletkult, testily explained in an open letter to the editors of the journal Kino-nedelia that Eisenstein had Beyond Recognition: Strike and the Eye of the Abattoir 23 not ‘left’ the Proletkult but had ‘been asked to leave’ in December 1924, once the Executive Bureau of the Moscow Proletkult had determined that his demands for author’s rights were ‘pretentious’ a n d t h e t o n e i n w h i c h h e h a d c o nve y e d h i s d e m a n d s ‘unacceptable’.

On the other hand, Eisenstein comes across here as old-fashioned despite himself, a master of stillness rather than motion, almost, one might say, more a painter than a filmmaker (such seems to be the sotto voce dig contained in Kuleshov’s praise of Eisenstein’s ‘good eye’). One important component of Eisenstein’s cinematic thinking, then, is a certain way of looking at the world: his eye. The scene Kuleshov points to as evidence of that eye’s strengths, the sequence in which the strikers are attacked by men wielding fire hoses, is indeed, as Kuleshov suggests, highly ‘photogenic’, even painterly.

The First World War had been a watershed for ‘moder nity’ across Europe; in Russia that war had been followed and exceeded Beyond Recognition: Strike and the Eye of the Abattoir 27 by revolution and civil war. The catharsis of revolution and the violence of war had done something to the way one saw the world; that was the assumption of artists everywhere, though of course the major discoveries of modernism – Cubism, Futurism, the Black Squar e ; the or na te and sometimes or namental langua ges of Symbolism and Acmeism; the cinema – had already arrived before the onset of war.
