    The Birth of a Nation

    ★★★½

    For the first two hours, I wondered what all the fuss was about. The Birth of a Nation seemed like a fascinating (though sometimes dull and overlong) portrayal of the Civil War from a Southern point of view. Then came the third hour. Ah…I see. That third hour is one long disturbing recruitment ad for the Ku Klux Klan. It’s unapologetically an ode to white supremacy.

    So, yes, this is a deeply flawed film. Technically, it’s well ahead of anything…

    Such a fun, fun film. Fun fun fun fun fun. And positive. It's great how Jack Black's character is so supportive of each and every student regardless their personality. Seriously, this movie is so much fun.

    A strange little film, unlike anything I’ve seen before. Still, a wonderful time capsule into 1978.

    This film is a chaotic mess. It never stops moving. It's an orgasm of CGI and pop culture references. In more measured doses, it’d be better. This is not awful. It's not poorly made. It's just TOO MUCH of everything draped on a mediocre story. Still, parts contain good old fashioned Spielberguan fun.
