Rating: 4/4 -- Represents the summit of Soviet cinema and remains one of the most poetic and visually beautiful of all Russian films.
It set a standard for other film-makers to reach. Full Review
More clearly influenced by Sergei Eisenstein than any of Dovzhenko's other pictures, it's certainly the one that uses fast editing in the most exciting fashion. Full Review
Rating: 2/5 -- Although one is impelled to be in thorough sympathy with its argument against war, one cannot but help feeling that one-fourth of the footage of this production would be ample for one sitting. Full Review

Rating: 5/5 -- One of cinema's most harrowing portraits of warfare. Full Review
Based around an actual event that occurred in the Ukranian Civil War, ARSENAL is an important addition to the complex, montage-based works of director Alexander Dovzhenko. An outnumbered group of Bolsheviks defend their besieged city from invading nationalist troops; Hiding out in the city's munitions plant (The "Arsenal" to which the title refers), the battle rages to an intense conclusion, with all of Dovzhenko's dizzying skills as a director employed to stunning effect.
