* SinisterMinister: That Moses-looking guy on the ship is an exaggerated version of an [[OrthodoxChristianity Russian Orthodox]] priest and is meant to show how religion is used to support the status quo and reinforce authority. While the film didn't focus on it, an obligatory anti-religion comment would be unavoidable.

'''''Battleship Potemkin''''' (Rus., ''Броненосец « Потёмкин », Bronyenosyets "Potyomkin"'') is a 1925 Soviet silent film, perhaps the most famous one directed by Creator/SergeiEisenstein, who also directed ''Film/AlexanderNevsky'' and ''Film/IvanTheTerrible''. It was also his experiment to test the emotional power of {{montage}}s.

* StockShoutOut: The staircase sequence has been referenced in so many films, including ''StarWars'', that it would be redundant to list them all. If there is a scene with a group of soldiers marching in unison up or down a staircase, it's safe to assume that's what it is. In Italy, if you mention this movie, the answer you'll get is ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fantozzi_(film) "Fantozzi".]]'' In the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Il_secondo_tragico_Fantozzi second installment]] of said movie series, the titular WhiteCollarWorker, Ugo Fantozzi, is forced, alongside his colleagues, to watch (a [[LawyerFriendlyCameo parody-named]] version of) the movie as a "routine ritual" demanded by his boss. The famous scene from the movie is when the protagonist snaps and yells, "To me... Battleship Potemkin... is nothing but crazy bullshit!". Then the [[LemonyNarrator narrator]] - Fantozzi himself in first person - remarks [[MundaneMadeAwesome in an "epic" tone:]] "Ninety-two minutes of applause ensued". ([[HilarityEnsues And hilarity ensued, too]].)

Added DiffLines:

** Not that easy. The poor conditions aboard the ship are shown in detail and the conditions are likely the same all over, and moreover the firing squad takes place at such a delay that it was likely enough.

** RealLife fact: Joseph Goebbels said that this film was the greatest propaganda film ever, and that "if a man with no strong political motivations saw it, he might well walk out a convicted Bolshevik". Which is pretty awesome, [[ValuesDissonance coming from Hitler's Minister of Propaganda...]] Also, the film was banned in the U.K. until the 1950s, due to fears that it might incite a working class rebellion -- high praise when you consider that that's exactly what the film is ''supposed'' to do.

** That massacre? Never happened. It was just made up so that the revolution would look more justified, though it still might have had some basis in facts—there were reports of demostrations being put down by troops on that day, so while the massacre as shown in the film most probably indeed never happened, this scene might be an exaggeration of some real event. [[hottip:*:The actual "massacre?" The Guards fired warning shots over the heads of the crowd in front of them... and hit a few people BEHIND the crowd in front of them. However, the Czarist troops did later prevent people from leaving the port after several buildings caught fire, indirectly leading to dozens of deaths. The Black Sea Mutiny was complicated. A more straight forward example would be when the Potemkin fired on Odessa. In the movie, they destroy the Czarist headquarters, in reality someone in fire control disagreed with the mutiny and gave them the wrong coordinates causing them to level a few blocks of tenements full of innocent people instead.]]
