A Cinematic Hogarth
3 March 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The main reason why the 34 year old D.W. Griffith made short films like this one was because he wanted to make as many films as possible so that his name would be in the public domain and that audiences would demand his work. He pairs off mainstream culture with diversity in this film by emphasizing a pseudo purity within the dominant society, and then demonising the marginalised. He compares and contrasts just like Hogarth would, painting a picture of self-definition through the process of othering. His characters do not integrate with the rest of the world and are therefore an expression of Griffith's own sensibilities.
