Nearly all of the actors involved had performed the work on stage previously, adding to the stellar overall performance.

Considered one of the most important films in the history of silent pictures, as well as possibly Eisenstein's greatest work, Battleship Potemkin brought Eisenstein's theories of cinema art to the world in a powerful showcase; his emphasis on montage, his stress of intellectual contact, and his treatment of the mass instead of the individual as the protagonist. The film tells the story of the mutiny on the Russian ship Prince Potemkin during the 1905 uprising.

Fact-based drama about a sociology graduate (Kathleen Quinlan) who starts working with teen prostitutes in Hollywood. The film does not draw back on its depiction of the brutality that the teens face nor of the exploitation that occurs from the pimps and johns ho use them. Pat Benatar's song "Hell Is For Children" is used to set the film's theme.
