Critic Reviews for The Struggle
One of his most powerful and intensely felt works -- not merely a heartbreaking story and a portrait of the Depression at its grimmest, but a poignant summary of everything that Griffith could do with a camera.
D. W. Griffith's last film, a crude, grim, grotesquely sentimental melodrama about an alcoholic's degradation, fits into the rare category of films that are great but not really very good.
Neither Miss Loos, Mr. Emerson nor Mr. Griffith can be said to have accomplished anything particularly novel by this screen work.
Griffith turned it into a rather maudlin and naive morality tale -- though it didn't merit the hostile reviews that it initially received.
One of the greatest directors who ever lifted a megaphone, David Wark Griffith was 56 when he made this, his last movie, and it is a shame that he had to bow out with such a dud.
