    The Birth of a Nation 1915

    ★★½ Watched 31 Aug, 2015

    Watched for Film History class

    Technically I only watched the second half, but I really think I saw enough. It's influential....blah blah...isn't that wonderful? Well no. I don't know. I can appreciate it's techwork and don't necessarily subscribe to the thought itself is racist as it seems like it's just a documentary and product of its time, not necessarily making statements.

    Mud 2012

    ★★★★ Rewatched 11 Aug, 2013 11

    I re-watched Mud tonight to see if it could live up to my previous viewing. Much like The Place Beyond the Pines, it does add up but it actually improved. TPBTP had one of the greatest acts of the century but faltered after its first 40 minutes. Jeff Nichols’s Mud, however, doesn’t ever really falter at all – consistently great cinema.
