    Dovzhenko’s Earth (1930) is a must see. Nice to see that you have seen a Raoul Walsh film recently. In this case it is “The Roaring Twenties” I read somewhere that it was ranked on a list of great obscure gangster films somewhere along with Robert Aldrich’s “The Grissom Gang”

      I too love Earth — a beautiful visual poem and a hymn to the land and the people who work it. Unfortunately, it tends to go over the least well out of the four movies I show in my rotating “Soviet Montage” slot (along with Potemkin, Man with the Movie Camera and Alexander Nevsky).
