"'Fueled by Mr. McBurney's incandescent performance, it is a portrait of the artist as political and spiritual renegade, a one-man wildfire that ultimately proved uncontainable."- Stephen Holden, THE NEW YORK TIMES
"Every image is full of beauty. Cheeky... ironic... post-modern. Eisenstein is a very inspiring film." DIE WELT
"Written and directed by Renny Bartlett with a brazen efficiency that borders on the alarming, 'Eisenstein' fudges fact and fiction with such confidence that we feel as if we are seeing something purer than the real thing." NEW YORK NEWSDAY
