Intolerance: Love's Struggle Throughout the Ages

Intolerance: Love's Struggle Throughout the Ages ★★★★★

From a day on Coney Island to the first miracles of Jesus: come past, come present, come the throes of poverty and the great gate of Babylon - Griffith's eye for the cinema is founded in the most impossibly grand images and his heart is sustained through the smallest moments of human tenderness that reside within the architecture of such an epic, both as a literal construct at unsurpassed scale and a suite of intercut storytelling whose universality is the convergence of time into a parallel moral philosophy reaching down from the heavens; love is a spectacle, love is a triumph, and it refuses to submit to the towering violence of intolerance.
