The Birth of a Nation

Why is that when I go to a film dealing with this subject matter, and it’s not that often, that I (and maybe you) have decided that it’s going to wheel out the same old troupes (this is very popular phrase in mainstream cinema criticism at the moment – I don’t like it) and that you are already disappointed with the film without ever having seen a single frame of it. However, I (and maybe you again) can watch countless thrillers from the French Connection to present day Bourne and be very happy with the same thriller troupes.

Birth of Nation needed a longer gestation period for it to be good film – too many shots across the cotton fields at Sunset……. ah God I can’t write anymore ⭐⭐1/2
