birth of a nation.

have you seen birth of a nation yet? we see fewer movies these days. (nick and bryan of mb met in the romantic comedy section of a hollywood video. pete was there, providing color commentary.) but we recommend this movie bigly. we'll reserve judgment on its acting and script and cinematography and story. the only four things we know how to judge in a movie. (wtf does a director do anyway? a producer? how do we really know whether an editor was good or the director was just really, really efficient?) and instead we'll judge it based on it's social commentary. is this the first movie about slavery that lacks a white savior? are there any redeeming white people in this movie? finally. a movie about slavery lacks a white hero for us to get all squishy over. ... either we need to watch more movies. or this one was really refreshing in that regard.
