Birth of a Nation
Charmingly racist and delightfully long and boring, this movie is a must see! I am kidding of course; this movie is the worst. I thought that I was capable of getting past the blatant racism and seeing the elements of revolutionary cinematography but no such luck. Maybe it is because I grew up in a pretty ignorant and racist town so I have a shorter fuse for it. This story is about the South and the Civil War. It also happens to be three hours and seven minutes long. But hey at least the next movie on the list is six hours long. I could use a break (in case you had not realized I am a very sarcastic person).
Interesting Facts (a new thing I am doing to make my posts longer):
Some African American characters were actually white people dressed up like black people. To add insult to injury sometimes a white male played a black female.
People were clamoring to pretend that they were a part of this film because of its significance. Kind of the opposite of what I would do.
The director was hurt when people thought his movie was racist. Fancy that!
