Sergei Eisenstein embraced Tolstoy's version of the Expression theory: A real work of art “arouses the complex of those feelings that gave birth to the composition.” In so doing, a film can achieve an affect that, in Eisenstein's words, “sends the spectator into ecstasy.” In his own work Eisenstein set the bar high for cinematic art, believing that true art should raise class-consciousness and transform the viewer, ideally causing the audience to take up arms against their sea of troubles as soon as they leave the theatre. Ironically, it has proven easier for those same editing techniques to sell commodities than inspire revolution. Eisenstein’s work is challenging but the rewards are commensurate with the effort.
