IVAN THE TERRIBLE: PARTS ONE AND TWO
BY SERGEI EISENSTEIN
Navigating the deadly waters of Stalinist politics, Eisenstein was able to film two parts of his planned trilogy about the troubled sixteenth-century tsar who united Russia. Visually stunning, Ivan the Terrible charts the rise to power and descent into terror of this veritable dictator. Though pleased with the first installment, Stalin detected the portrait in the second filmwith its summary executions and secret policeand promptly banned it. (1944/1958, 184 min total running time ten minute intermission between parts, 35mm). All YBCA presented films in January are new prints of films that were previously only available in old crummy prints, if at all.
