Historical Representation
2 December 2003 | by Single-Black-MaleSee all my reviews

A new generation of middle class spectators wanted the 36 year old Cecil B. DeMille to inform them through a teleological medium of where their place was in history. This film provided an answer to that community reinforcing socio-economic boundaries to exclude the urban other.
