A struggle that continues long after the end of the war.
30 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is no doubt that D.W. Griffith's Birth of a Nation is racist. It is hard to praise this cinematic gem without soiling yourself in the process. One can watch it on their own, and they certainly should as it is a classic, and form their own opinion. We do not need DJ Spooky's commentary.

But, if you haven't seen it, this is an excellent way to watch. The core of the film is left intact, with commentary at the most egregious moments. The music of DJ Spooky makes it even more enjoyable.

Spooky questions whether Griffith's version of history has influenced us even to this day. There is certainly ample evidence that freedom did not come to Blacks with the end of the war, but that they were disenfranchised for another 100 years. Is Griffith's film responsible for that? One has to watch and make up their own minds, but this is an excellent piece for thought.
