Documented Living
10 June 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Short films like this one aren't stories nor are they paintings. They are documented living, tracing the movements of characters created by the 34 year old D.W. Griffith. Moving images are meant to be a progression from still life paintings. Hogarth could easily be regarded as the pre-cursor to black and white anecdotal short films, but his emphasis was on diversity. Griffith on the other hand is averse to diversity. When he isn't discrediting diversity, he is documenting life at the turn of the century. It is like a window to a particular community in the past that does not tell a story. It is boring, flat, monotone - a bit like day to day living.
