Intolerance Geregisseerd door D.W. Griffith
With its haphazard plotting and the failure of its stories to come together thematically, Griffith’s film decidedly fails as a political argument. And yet, Intolerance is nevertheless magnificent, the cinema’s first masterpiece of lunatic ambition.

Together, all of it is at least one of cinema’s great vexations, an astonishing and Herculean visual achievement cursed in various amplitudes by auteurism, guilt, memories of bigotry, evolving norms, and the power of cinema itself.

The plunging and roving camera provides visceral thrills; ecstatic special effects capture the sacred (the Crucifixion) and the profane (combat in the Great War); a metaphysical framing device (starring Lillian Gish) raises human conflict to universal import; and Griffith’s trademark closeups lend a quivering lip or a trembling hand the tragic grandeur of historical cataclysm.
