Tolerate only good movies.

Intolerance. D. W. Griffith. You cannot just go and watch this movie as entertainment. You need to go prepared. This is the silent era movie pinnacle of moviemaking and its a tough sit. It is close to three hours and takes the time to tell the story of intolerance through the ages. I took my time and was in the right mood to enjoy such a movie. I suggest you do the same. The movie is still impressive and very up to date with regards to its subject matter. Griffith made sure with this movie that for decades to come, people would be inspired and understand the greatness of making a movie and what it could tell the audience by just watching a piece of celluloid. Masterpiece but a GrandMaster of movies but one that needs its time and place to watch. Unprepared you will fail. (1916)
