Whip Pan
10 June 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Even with two minutes worth of footage, the 34 year old D.W. Griffith still doesn't make use of the camera as a person. There are no whip pans in this offering, neither does the camera push back the boundaries of the tale by guiding our eyes to some point of truth. It appears to me that Griffith does not how to guide the audiences' eyes in his storytelling. The camera constantly remains passive like a truck parked sideways on a motorway. The lack of visual probing from the camera gets in the way of the film, restraining us in our seats. If the camera moves, then the audience are engaged in the plot, pushing them deeper into the story.
