D.W. Griffith United States, 1919

Brotherdeacon's rating of the film True Heart Susie

3 & a half cows. Adorable, like playing with dolls, or kittens, or assessing Little Women as a really good novel. It's a dreamworld of innocence which doesn't exist anywhere, and although the introduction may claim some feminist values, they are very, very few if at all. Gish is perfect, Griffith is close to perfect, but still dolls and kittens. Lillian Gish rocks--as always.
