I Don't Believe His Characters
23 January 2004 | by Single-Black-MaleSee all my reviews

Although I appreciate the 34 year old D.W. Griffith's nurturing of cinematic language, I think it was to the neglect of his character development which is why he is misunderstood and has caused a stir in the past. This 4 minute wonder is a prime example.
