Almost intellectual montage

" While Eisenstein was proudest of his “invention” of intellectual montage in the parallel bloodbaths in Strike! (1924), what most endures about his work is his mastery of the editing techniques he identified as metric, rhythmic, tonal and over-tonal in “Methods of Montage”. In his view, editing involved the audience more than the passive reception of information from static and lengthy shots."

"Just adding a bit of suspense", retorted Sam Renseiw editing a banal shot of a window painter, mashed-up in the usual Lumière train arrival at a station. "That's where the ideas come from".
