  • "Eisenstein's first film considered an experimental milestone in Russian cinema, treats the topic of the tragic workers' strike in Czarist Russia."
  • "A 1912 strike of factory workers is brutally put down by the authorities."@en
  • "A 1912 strike of factory workers is brutally put down by the authorities."
  • "Triggered by the suicide of a worker unjustly accused of theft, a strike is called by the laborers of a Moscow factory. The managers, owner, and Czarist government dispatch infiltrators in an attempt to break the workers' unity. Unsuccessful, they hire the police and, in the film's most harrowing and powerful sequences, the unarmed strikers are slaughtered in a brutal confrontation."@en
  • "Story of a strike by factory workers in Tsarist Russia that is characterized by crowd scenes and violence."@en
  • "Histoire d'une grève durement réprimée, vers 1912, par la police tsariste. Réalisé en décors naturels comme une actualité reconstituée, avec les ouvriers agissant comme héros collectif. Les parties: la situation; les raisons de la grève; l'usine s'arrête; la grève se ralentit; les provocateurs à l'oeuvre; la répression (agression de la police locale, agents de l'Okhrana déguisés en clochards, ouvriers arrosés d'eau)."
  • ""A government-commissioned celebration of the unrealized 1905 Bolshevik revolution. The story is set in motion by a series of outrages and humiliations perpetrated on the workers of a metalworks plant. The Czarist regime is unsympathetic to the workers, characteristically helping the plant owners to subjugate the hapless victims. Finally, the workers revolt, staging an all-out strike."--Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide."
  • ""Taking an historical event from 1912, Eisenstein marries the new Soviet propaganda ideals of the heroic worker with his own theories of avant garde art. Following the suicide of a sacked factory worker, his colleagues hold a peaceful strike, but their bosses retaliate with savage force"--Container."@en
  • ""One of the most original debuts in film history, Strike is a brilliant mixture of agit-prop techniques and comic-grotesque stylization in the telling of a factory workers' strike in Czarist Russia in 1912 and the brutal suppression of the strike.""
  • ""...initially intended as part of an eight-episode epic, which would have recreated different historical events leading to the full-scale workers revolt." The series was never completed. In this film ... "the workers in a factory stage a strike, which is brutally suppressed by the Tsarist capitalists!"."
  • "Depicts a 1912 factory workers strike that is brutally put down by the authorities."
  • "Story of a strike by factory workers in Tsarist Russia which is brutally suppressed. The first feature film by the director of Battleship Potemkin, Sergei Eisenstein's Strike is a visual tour-de-force that employs dynamic editing and experimental camerawork to dramatize the saga of a bitterly-fought factory strike in 1903. Often compared to Citizen Kane in terms of audacious directorial debuts, the film embodies the revolutionary spirit of the Soviet people of the 1920s, cresting the waves of artistic and political idealism."@en
  • "Crowd scenes and violence characterize a 1912 Russian workers' strike."@en
  • ""Tells the story of what happens when the workers of a Russian factory go on strike. Told in six parts, each part shows a different aspect of the strike in succession. The strike begins when a worker is accused of stealing machinery and commits suicide. The end depicts the factory owners, frustrated with the striking workers, calling in the government and military to help put down the workers." -- back cover."@en

  • "Eisenstein conceived his first film not as the portrayal of an actual historical event but as a generalised picture of a strike without individual heroes; the mass is a collective hero represented by types rather than characters. Strike is an anti-naturalistic series of poster-like sketches containing Eisenstein's first experiments with montage both for direct emotional impact (collision) and for the presentation of abstract ideas (metaphor). A constructivist approach is evident in the way machinery is represented not as dominating the workers but as being enlisted by them in the struggle."

  • "The first film directed by the great Soviet director Sergei Eisenstein. Eisenstein revolutionized filmmaking with his inspired editing techniques, however his artistic temperament consistently brought him into conflict with Stalin and the Soviet bureaucracy. Strike was attacked in the Soviet Union and officially declared "lost" under Stalin. Due to attacks from Soviet authorities, Eisenstein himself had to renounce the film. Eisenstein conceived this film not as the portrayal of an actual historical event but as a generalised picture of the proletariat masses as collective hero. Strike is a series of sketches containing Eisenstein's first experiments with montage, both for direct emotional impact (collision) and for the presentation of abstract ideas (metaphor)."To Eisenstein, the concept of collision was the expression in art of Marxist dialectics, the thesis to antithesis to synthesis. It also represents the subverting of objective reality and of the unwitting spectator, who is thereby raised to new levels of comprehension by the manipulations of the director. In Strike, this emphasis on collision is carried out in almost every one of its thousands of shots by such technical devices as changing the size of the image within the frame, unorthodox dissolves and iris effects (even to the combining of the two) split screen, slow and reverse motion, unexpected camera movements and angles, double exposures, the use of masks to hide or reveal portions of the image, the sudden intrusion of objects and limbs into frame, the introduction of new locales and/or characters without prior explanation."

  • "Feature film about a fictional, but typical, workers' strike in Tsarist Russia, and the efforts made by the authorities to break it."
  • "Sergei Eisenstein's "Strike," with Orson Welles' "Citizen Kane," mark the most outstanding cinematic debuts in the history of film. Triggered by the suicide of a worker unjustly accused of theft, a strike is called by the laborers of a Moscow factory. The managers, owner and the Czarist government dispatch infiltrators in an attempt to break the workers unity. Unsuccessful, they hire the police and, in the film's most harrowing and powerful sequences, the unarmed strikers are slaughtered in a brutal confrontation. This edition of "Strike" is digitally remastered from a mint-condition 35mm print made from the original camera negative and features new stereo music composed and performed by the Alloy Orchestra."

  • ""IIn 1922, Lenin also had said that, " ... of all of the arts, for us the cinema was the most important." In 1924, the Proletkult offered Eisenstein, then 26 years of age, the jobof directing the first 8 episodes in the film series Towards the Dictatorship. This brilliant and complex re-creation of the development of a 1912 factory strik in Tsarist Russia, and its savage destruction by agents provocateurs, police and mounted troops, was an ideal vehicle for the youthful Eisenstein to express his desire to reflect the dialectic of the Russian Revolution in the most comprehensive of art forms."--Beyond Home Entertainment website."

  • "Story of a strike by factory workers in Tsarist Russia. It is brutally supressed. Russian Language with English subtitles."
  • "In Russia's factory region during Czarist rule, there's restlessness and strike planning among workers; management brings in spies and external agents. When a worker hangs himself after being falsely accused of thievery, the workers strike. At first, there's excitement in workers' households and in public places as they develop their demands communally. Then, as the strike drags on and management rejects demands, hunger mounts, as does domestic and civic distress. Provocateurs recruited from the lumpen and in league with the police and the fire department bring problems to the workers; the spies do their dirty work; and, the military arrives to liquidate strikers."
  • "STRIKE blends political metaphor with radical technique as it dramatizes the genesis and violent consequences of a workers' revolt. A cinematic endeavor that applies some of the tactics of the avant-garde theatre group Proletkult, it combines radical theatrical conceits with constructivist graphics and filmic experiments to achieve its idealistic aim. With score by the Alloy Orchestra."
  • "In pre-Revolutionary Russia, a factory worker is unjustly accused of theft and hangs himself when management threatens to withhold his pay. The other workers go on strike in protest; the police viciously break up the demonstration of the workers' mutual loyalty."
  • "Illustrates one aspect of the struggle that resulted in the Russian Revolution of 1917."
