The Worst Thing About Birth Of A Nation? It's Effective Filmmaking
Richard Brody: "It's hard to understand why Griffith's film merits anything but a place in the dustbin of history ... [Yet it] wasn't just a seminal commercial spectacle but also a decisively original work of art - in effect, the founding work of cinematic realism, albeit a work that was developed to pass lies off as reality."
