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

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

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: 3/5 -- The Birth of a Nation has become a staple of any film studies course, for its excellent performances, thrilling action sequences and epic landscapes. However it's subject matter is much more controversial now. 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

Rating: 4/4 -- A film that deserves, no demands, to be acknowledged, if for no other reason than to come to terms with the racist history it represents. Full Review
