Sergei Eisenstein

Russian filmmaker and propagandist whose main contribution to cinema was the perfection of the montage.

Indifferent Battleship Potemkin (1925) -- For me, this is one of those movies that I can appreciate on a technical level (apparently  Eisenstein perfected the montage, for example), but I prefer what later filmmakers did with the innovations of this movie.  Still, some bits are interesting to watch even today.
