An eye-opening graph indeed. Maks sense to read this graph against Eisenstein's own analysis of BP's large-segnent structure. And it does make sense (surprising as it may seen ar firts) that the most famous example of Soviet montage, the Odessa steps massacre, turns out to be shortest segment and othe slowest (an ALS of 4.5 as against 3.0 of the entire film). Try change Step to 1, Degree of the trendline to 12, and Moving average range to 10. This allows us to see the cutting speed of each of the sequences against the average. Bravo, Mohsen!

Thanks. The Odessa Steps Segment is divided into two parts in this study (the red colour belongs to what comes after when the intertitle reads “Suddenly”). So the first part has the highest ASL and the second part the lowest. For more accurate result I should measure the whole segment another time without dividing it.
