The Probing Camera
10 June 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

One of the disappointing things about the 34 year old D.W. Griffith's work is that he doesn't use his camera as a character. The camera never seems to probe a scene, to search out truth or hidden insights into character. It is a passive machine, merely standing by and watching what is going on without any engagement. There is no way that you can compare Griffith with any of the Georgian painters who defined visual art. His short films are not painted with careful brush strokes but with clumsy, ungainly efforts. I learnt absolutely nothing after watching this film and felt the worst for it. He should have paid more attention to his camera script rather than churning out 2 projects per week.
