The civil war battle pictures, taken in panorama, represent enormous effort and achieve a striking degree of success. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- A towering milestone in the history of cinema. Asentimentalised, reactionary slab of racism. Can a film be both? In the case of D.W. Griffith's silent-era classic The Birth Of A Nation, unfortunately it can. Full Review

The biggest challenge the film provided for its audiences is perhaps to decide when 'ground-breaking, dedicated, serious cinematic art' must be reviled as politically reprehensible. Full Review

The quasi-Victorian Griffith was in so many respects way ahead of his time even if his philosophy and mind-set could often be said to be behind it. Full Review
Aug 19, 2013
Griffith's later films are unquestionably superior. But here, in a very real sense, is where the movies began, both as an art and as a business. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- D.W. Griffith's The Birth of a Nation is as much a part of film history as the Civil War is a part of American history. Full Review

While it's clear that D.W. Griffith's The Birth Of A Nation is a seminal work of narrative filmmaking and will forever live in infamy as a result (being seen by new eyes generation after generation) that doesn't mean one can't wish it were never made. Full Review
