Development Hell

This short film could have benefited from a treatment and outline before it even reached a script stage. It was terrible to watch. There is absolutely no poetry or melodic qualities to the 34 year old D.W. Griffith's films. Instead of recreating life in moving pictures, he advances his own ideas and fantasies on screen. I learned absolutely nothing about the characters in this offering (mainly because they were one-dimensional), but I did learn a lot about the director. He fuses his own unfulfilled ambitions on the stage in his work, and the fact that he churns out two films a week is just not feasible in the real world. This installment is nothing more than a cartoon strip that moves.
