Birth of a Nation, The (1915) 

1/4 stars

Nothing can be simple, can it? The Birth of a Nation is indeed a landmark film with its groundbreaking technical achievements. In this sense, it could be seen as the first modern movie with a fleshed out story filling up a feature-length running time, a soundtrack, and creative editing.
But it is famous for another reason. It's incredibly and unrepentantly RACIST!

I struggle with this one as well. I'm not sure that it's right to judge a movie based on it's message. But it's hard to appreciate a movie who's message is so offensive by today's standards. I try and judge it based on the quality of the picture itself, and not just it's message. my conclusion is that The Birth of a Nation is one of the most important films of all time, it just hasn't aged very well. Poor D.W. Griffith and his stupid racism.
