Sergei Eisenstein's final film, this is the first part of a three-part biopic of Czar Ivan Grozny, which was never completed due again to producer dissatisfaction with Eisenstein's attempts to use forbidden experimental filming techniques and excessive cost overruns. The second part was completed but not released for a decade after Eisenstein's death and a change of heart in the USSR government toward his work; the third part was only in its earliest stage of filming when shooting was stopped altogether. In this first part, set during the early part of his reign, Ivan faces betrayal from the aristocracy and even his closest friends as he seeks to unite the Russian people.Ivan the Terrible, Part I featuring Nikolai Cherkasov and Lyudmila Tselikovskaya is streaming with subscription on The Criterion Channel, and available for rent or purchase on iTunes. It's a biography and drama movie with a very high Rotten Tomatoes (critics) score of 100% and a high IMDb audience rating of 7.8 (8,388 votes).
