    Insane production! Excellent score, though not sure if it's original. Overall one of the more "watchable" among silents, especially given it's content. I'm glad I watched this! 8 years 7 months ago

    What an EPIC!! How could D.W. Griffith do this in 1916? 8 years 8 months ago

    Undoubtedly great, but don't just delve into this. By modern standards it's very slow and overtly dramatic, but if you pay attention to the sets, the editing and the cinematography there is a lot to appreciate. 9 years 10 months ago
