* ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'': The FilmWithinAFilm "[[Film/BirthOfANation Pride of a Nation]]" (about Fredrick Zoller) shows a soldier get shot in the eye before covering it and screaming.

** ''Film/LoveAndDeath'':''Film/LoveAndDeath'': Not to the Odessa steps sequence per se, but to the stone lion montage that comes afterwards. It plays when Boris and the Baroness have sex, and the third lion, instead of rising triumphantly, is plopped down in exhaustion.


Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Histeria}}'': The episode dedicated to the Russian Revolution has a segment about the making of ''Battleship Potemkin'', with the kids pestering Eisenstein. The editing of the final film is the result of Big Fat Baby playing around in the editing room.





* ''Film/{{Brazil}}'' has a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lWa_U1DO7DU short sequence]] that remakes the three most iconic shots, but with the baby replaced by a vacuum cleaner.

Added DiffLines:

* German culture mag [[https://www.zdf.de/kultur/aspekte "Aspekte"]] from 16/Feb/18 with a report about the Berlinale, in form of a short film. Everything is totally meta, and of course assorted stock film references can't be amiss.


* ''Fantozzi'': There is a Film-within-a-film in this Italian work -- in the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Il_secondo_tragico_Fantozzi second installment]] of the movie series, the titular WhiteCollarWorker, Ugo Fantozzi, is forced, alongside his colleagues, to watch (a much longer [[LawyerFriendlyCameo parody-named]] version of) the movie as a "routine ritual" demanded by his boss. It is during the Odessa steps scene when the protagonist snaps and yells, "To me... Battleship Kotiomkin... 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]].)[[note]]Incidentally, that bit about applause is now also sort-of the basis for the {{meme}} of "unbelievable story -- the whole room clapped".[[/note]]

And because it is one of the most memorable things to come out of that film, a lot of fiction now has action sequences on a staircase in slow motion. Unlike the KingKongClimb, though, the original and its place in popular culture are not [[PopCulturalOsmosis universally recognised]]; scenes that are smaller {{Shout Out}}s may be invoking the GeniusBonus. One such type of this scene is any case of a baby carriage rolling down stairs/downhill being put in slow motion and drawn out, often with a POVShot from inside/looking into it (rather than a simple shot).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Steps'' is a short film that takes place on the steps. Not the actual stairs but [[HolodeckMalfunction an incredible simulation]], complete with [[HawaiianShirtedTourist obnoxious]] [[JapaneseTourist tourists]].
