First of all, I always find it a daunting prospect to watch a 3 hours long silent feature and its notorious and controversial reputation was not really attractive. Eventually, I must admit it, the first half was actually quite impressive. Indeed, it was a really intriguing depiction of the Civil war, displ... read more

Description: The Civil War divides friends and destroys families, but that's nothing compared to the anarchy in the black-ruled South after the war. The plot of The Birth of a Nation revolves around two families living on either side of the Mason-Dixon Line who become friends when their sons board together at school.

1001 Movies ... my own version (1910's) (1 movies items)

" Notes: Eventually, I must admit it, the first half was actually quite impressive. Indeed, it was a really intriguing depiction of the Civil war, displaying the impact on the people of the North and the South.

However, in the second half, Griffith went completely apeshit on us and the whole thing became really despicable. First"
