1914

I saw more old movies like from 1909. I didnt like this movie cause director not able to keep everyones body part on the camera. 1 scene you cant see the guys head. Other scene he putted the camera so much right side we couldn see the left side actors mostly we watch door (right side on the scene) That much basic rule if you couldnt able to do that that means there is not much talent. More old movies better than this movie. I couldnt watch all of them cause of this nonsense mistakes. Just keep the camera on the people basic rule.
