I watched Birth of a Nation for the first time in my life in a class I'm taking called "History of Film" and I gotta say it is really good despite it's racism and stereotypes of races. It's funny to see the KKK completely glamorfied and made to look like this secret band of vigilantes, I guess this is how all KKK members see it in their eyes. Now despite it's extremely contraversial racist plot the cinematography is the best of the best. All of the wide shots and angle shots were done so perfectly not even Speilberg could top it, well maybe he can lol. So what is your opinion? Do you see Birth of a Nation as an example of good cinematography, or is it more than that and should never see the light of day again for it's hateful crimes against African-Americans? I have a paper due on monday and I just need some help writing it out, and seeing that many of you on here are movie-buffs could you lend me your opinion to help make my descision?
