A Victorian Pageant
Most of the 34 year old D.W. Griffith's short films look like a Victorian pageant. It is robbed of dialogue, portraying lesser personnel as sub-human. I think what was needed in this four minute piece was for the characters to be humanized in order to be more believable. There was little for me to embrace in this film because it had nothing to hold my attention. The protagonist was not a reflection of me, and basically dragged me (rather than carry me) through the plot. It was quite an alienating experience as there was nothing personal in it for me. There was no light relief, and the four minutes just plodded along. It lacked sympathy and emotional tug that would enable me to take this film to heart.
