Description:Savage Junctures provides fresh insights into Eisenstein’s films and writings. It examines the multiple contexts within which his films evolved and Eisenstein’s appropriation of world cultures as his sources. Nesbet focuses on the possibilities of visual image making and each chapter addresses the problem of his image-based thinking from a different perspective. Each chapter also offers a fundamentally new interpretation of the films and writings that make up his oeuvre. This is a major new contribution to studies in Soviet cinema and culture and to the field of film studies.
