Product Description

Product Description

The effects of intolerance are considered in four historical periods, ancient Babylon, Judea at the time of Christ, sixteenth century Paris and modern America. DW Griffith s follow up to the epic Birth Of A Nation is rightfully considered another masterpiece.

Great, great film. Terrible, terrible DVD.
Substandard visuality... No restoration... Painful to watch even if you're not hi-definition blue-ray freak...
VHS with this level of quality would be unacceptable, not to speak of DVD.

D.W. Griffith's previous great 'Birth of a Nation' had aroused such controversy that he decided to fight back. Intolerance is a superb piece of filmmaking and one that I most strongly recommend to all true lovers of the cinema. The lesson is made in four stories: The first story is of how the Priest of Bel betrays Belshazzar in ancient Babylon, with the final conclusion being the savage destruction of the great city. The battle scenes more than rival those of Ben Hur, Alexander the Great or any other tale of heroism in old times. The second story is that of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and of those who allowed it to happen. This story is not explored upon much and is given less treatment than the other three, although its impact remains potent. The third story takes place in renaissance France, where the Catholics slaughter the Protestants. The massacre is more violent than one would expect from a film of 1916, and despite its rather crude delivery, it still manages to shock and appal. The final story is set in what was then the modern world. A group of women fighting for decency and a proper society reduce life to a boring and monotonous existence. A man is to be hanged for a murder committed by one of the women who does not confess and when she finally does, a gang of men rush to save the boy just in time. All these stories are linked by an image of Lillian Gish rocking a cradle, symbolic of the innocence she protects.
Intolerance is extremely meaningful and poignant with good performances and shocking moments throughout. Its breathtaking sets and scenes are enough to keep anyone entertained, and this film comes to a superb climax four times.

Having seen this great film with live music during a Thames Silents festival, I was keen to obtain a copy of this film. However, the film is entirely ruined by the appalling quality of the DVD. The pictures shown on the box are clear and give the impression this is a restored, quality print. In fact, it proved impossible to watch. The many lines and graininess of the print are bad enough but the real killer are the white captions over a brighter flickering light in the centre of the screen which gave us all a headache and forced us to stop watching after only ten minutes.

I can recommend this film but DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS VERSION.

Imagine that Steven Spielberg was no longer directing movies and that WAR OF THE WORLDS would be the one film he is remembered for. Would that be a fair assessment of his career? Absolutely not but that is what has happened to cinema pioneer D.W. Griffith. The film he is remembered for today is the 1915 BIRTH OF A NATION which was the first important American epic. Unfortunately its source material THE CLANSMAN (the film's original title) is a Southern view of the Civil War which glorifies the Ku Klux Klan and is extremely racist (although toned down considerably from the book by Thomas Dixon). Griffith made 34 feature films and over 400 shorts between 1908 and 1931. In the overwhelming majority of these he is a social progressive tackling such issues as poverty, political corruption, worker exploitation and interracial romance. He even made an anti-Klan film THE ROSE OF KENTUCKY back in 1912. I mention all of this because in this current climate of political correctness Griffith is being judged and censured on the basis of one film as opposed to his whole body of work and the damage being done to his reputation is still going on. In the recent Oscar nominated film JUNEBUG, one of the characters is a Southern racist Civil War painter who happens to be named David Wark (the D.W. in Griffith's name).

INTOLERANCE, the follow-up to NATION, was the most ambitious and expensive film ever made up to that point (1916) and forever changed the way that movies would be made after it. Because of the lifesize sets of Ancient Babylon and the thousands of extras employed, the movie would cost over $500 million to remake today. Its central theme shows how intolerance through the ages breeds anger, anger then breeds repression and repression breeds more intolerance.

The DVD cover says "Colossal Spectacle" and, if anything, it is an understatement. Films if this type simply aren't made any more at 2 and 3/4 hours it examines the deep subject of man's intolerance to his fellow man through time in four historic settings (Babylon, 1st century Judea, 16th century Paris and "Boom" America in the early 1900's.)The cinematography is excellent and often sumptuous especially Babylon, the largest film set ever constructed and it's staggering "zoom in" sequences. It isn't so much a "Movie" as a moving (in both senses) work of art! Some of the acting, especially Paris and the US is a little "hammy" while some of the performances are tender and full of sentiment, seen well in the many close up shots all of which add to the piece.
This version is of good , if not brilliant quality, sometimes the (sub?)titles are barely visible, especially the white on "book background" ones (more expensive "re-conitioned" versions are availible, but in my opinion, a little "rawness with age" is no bad thing and adds context and a certain authenticity.) Overall detail and context are still clear enough but at the very reasonable price paid, one cannot quibble! This staggering masterpiece should be watched by all fans of modern cinema with it's "same old" computer generated effects and formula "acting" and see how it should be done, and how it indeed was done in 1916. The Babylon sequences are simply stunning.
