#55. Earth [Zemlya] (1930)
Why It's In The Book: "Arguably, Aleksandr Dovhenko’s Earth is the single greatest achievement of the ever-more-impressive Soviet silent cinema. A modernist who drew deep inspiration from folk art – not unlike his contemporaries Marc Chagall and Sholem Aleichem – Dovzehko’s ode to the beginning of collectivisation in the Ukraine is a riot of delirious imagery of swaying wheat fields, ripening fruits, and stampeding horses…. Anyone looking for the origins of Andrei Tarkovsky’s cinema must start with Earth." -1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die
Nicolas Krizan - 7/10
"Almost a parody of early art cinema."
Kim Wilson - 6/10
"This film is considered one of the greatest Soviet-era silent films ever made. I can’t agree, seeing as I found both The Battleship Potemkin and October 100 times more watchable than this."

Adolytsi - 5/10
"This isn’t supposed to be an entertainment film, and I can’t begrudge it for what it intends itself to be; I can only give or not give a recommendation based on entertainment value, of which this has very little."
Squish - 5/10
"Having since looked up what a kulak was... I get Earth now. I guess what I'm getting at is that I didn't need a 75-minute montage piece about farmers buying a tractor to get that message through to me."
Thomas - 5/10
"It's no Eisenstein or Vertov but a story is told one way or another."
Movie Guy Steve - 3/10
"I can think of no earthly reason other than it being a required watch for The List that anyone would want to watch this piece of slow, tractor-fueled somnambulism."
Siochembio - 3/10
"My favorite parts of this movie included when Simon, apparently on his deathbed, sits up with zero effort, demands something to eat, has an apple, then says “Well goodbye, I’m dyin’." And then lays down and dies. That was awesome."
TSorensen - 2/10
"Zemlya is heralded as an achievement. I just wonder what sort of achievement they are referring to. The likeliest answer is an achievement in supreme boredom. But it could also be 'most inconsistent storyline ever' or '“most agitated reception of a tractor in recorded history'."
