The Films of D.W. Griffith, Ranked by Eliecer Gaspar

“What modern movies lack is the wind in the trees.” – D.W. Griffith

“The static camera, like that of Lumière (or D.W. Griffith, to whom Straub has particularly made reference) invites us to watch for slight movements (leaves, musicians’ hands, wigs) within the frame, and view them as if they had never been seen before on a screen.” – Martin Walsh
