Antagony & Ecstasy

This was clearly not conceived as a sleek, effective narrative or even an exploration of character psychology, but as a tremendous, overwhelming experience.

D.W. Griffith's masterpiece, likely the most influential film ever made, has been given new life with a gold-standard digital cleanup.

Movie Metropolis

Griffith's 'Intolerance' was way ahead of its time in terms of its camera angles, sophisticated storytelling, and elaborate set construction. And the restoration and HD treatment makes it shine.

Intolerance is thrilling and vital, a collision of historical periods that feels as earth-shaking as the movement of tectonic plates.

Intolerance looks both backward and forward. The strong exploit the weak, it cries, and all governments throughout history are evil.

Foreshadows what film could be -- spectacle reinforcing eternal themes of love and death -- and, at its best, would be.

A landmark, to be certain, but wildly uneven.

Intolerance reflects much credit to the wizard director, for it required no small amount of genuine art to consistently blend actors, horses, monkeys, geese, doves, acrobats and ballets into a composite presentation of a film classic.

Intolerance's sets, costumes, compositions, and mass deployment of bodies in motion are often impressive, especially in the battle of Babylon sequence.

The verdict Intolerance renders in the controversy concerning its maker is that he is a real wizard of lens and screen.

Combustible Celluloid

The film presents its stories on the grandest of scales, sparing no expense in re-creating the period, and especially the monstrous Babylonian sets.

The greatest spectacle of the silent era, and an audacious storytelling experiment decades ahead of its time… stunning but flawed, alternately dazzling and trying.

Over-extended and powered by a glib conceit, but still a stunning piece of filmmaking, with a breathtaking set.
