De Griffith was a Muslim
6 January 2020 | by mrdonleoneSee all my reviews

Unfortunately always see our people on the street doing things they shouldn't do and that is not very much interesting of course there's a whole family's I'm subject that is not really touched upon between to them about women and their role in society of course but can we see we go left to go right. Evil men that criminals and of course you should have the music that the study that I did but if the music doesn't really play in the middle City then of course what can we say that the movie release in great we can see the special effects were known since then of course just a bit put together with those crazy things on the woman definitely trying to do better acting really isn't that great and of course because of this it is very sad to see that it's not so great and we can only see people moving their hands shaking their heads and then since there is no real music we want about it is the story isn't really great wonderful about the story itself in the movie in the film and everything is much too Short too much too long at the same time a time before we know it's 5 minutes betterment still have fake Jordan still too long so you see it is very sad us Muslims we don't like this movie we say a woman when she goes on the street with a short dress then she has the chance that she gets assaulted by a man and a man is always innocent because he just follows the nature that allowed to great one has given him inshallah and then for the rest of us can we save it's a movie about the subject maybe this was greater mean DW Griffith already made movies about homosexuality and racial slurs and now definitely a woman here who is being assaulted on the street definitely a great subject for us Muslims to look up on and think about things shall Allahu Akbar and then for the rest what can we say a woman should not dress inappropriately of course this is all the way that we can see that as Muslims be really think about this movie and then we can only identify with the whole subject of the matter and because of this nothing can be said about the movie but that the time is going fast and the gathering everything on the wall of course with the painting and the woman more looking at me like my fiance but then what can we say about it nothing is great about the movie because it's filled with disturbing horrible sets with bad special effects which I'm not used to no one is used to about DW Griffith and DW Griffith used to be a big man but it was a bit further along with The birth of a Nation intolerance and other movies like broken blossoms about the romance and all these things going on and what was the other thing about we come from the east or re-home East or whatever and all this beautiful movies and then the partner of Dolly the sheep of Dahlia whatever with a baby flying in the air was beautiful and then of course all these things that we can see and think about that then of course we can only conclude that all these things are great to see except this one and sometimes there are exceptions such as this but I'm weak on ovilla concluded to sync every keep on wondering stop music we are wondering what is this about definitely but in those days it must have been a highlight spectacle of the Asian definitely people side of the hundreds of movies that DW Griffith inventing the way the people at nowadays still made it's incredible to see but then of course we can only agree I got this movie must have lifted the spirits of the movies up to a better level of understanding and because of this there is nothing else to say but that the great ones must see the movie or running but the camera was really moving because they didn't even turn it back down yet and of course they'd only came much later I wonder when but much much later I believe in the 20th President once we don't let the milk in the twenties it's not madewell and of course we see these people and that is all that can be said about that
