Propaganda notwithstanding, director Sergei M. Eisenstein's masterwork remains a cinematic landmark, charting events that ultimately led to the Bolshevik Revolution. Fed up with the ship's officers' brutalities and with maggot-infested rations, the crew of the battleship &NFi;Prince Potemkin&NFi_; revolts. The rebellion ignites an uprising by the citizens of Odessa, resulting in czarist troops' infamous, systematic slaughter of insurgents and bystanders.
