    At Eternity's Gate

    Still a little on the fence on whether this was obnoxious or brilliant. Perhaps both in equal measures. Certainly makes an interesting pair with the Minnelli movie.

    ★★★

    Right at the start the movie reminded me so much of My Friend Ivan Lapshin, that the bar for the rest was raised perhaps unjustly high. Stylistically very similar, but underneath not quite as humane.

    Falls outside of all ratings. I don't remember when I've had quite as much fun watching a film though, I think entertaining is the exact word for this.

    Came for the montage, was not disappointed. Pudovkin's terrific images are lovely to look at and interesting as myth-building. The original novel from Gorki seems a little more interesting when it comes to actual subject matter.
