When you think you're ready for the 3-hour Griffith melodramas, you should definitely try Way Down East. I watched it twice in a row because... I was just too impressed.

To be honest I'm kind of afraid to watch the Griffith epics. I remember that I took a class where we had to read about The Birth of a Nation, and the way this author described it made it sound like the most thrilling movie ever. Then when we watched pieces of it it was just so... not what I was expecting. Don't even get me started on Intolerance!

I was thinking of starting with Broken Blossoms to ease into Griffith, but I'll look into your suggestion as well.

Hahaha, I have my problems sitting through Intolerance as well, especially the Babylon segment. Lillian Gish rocking the cradle may be the most powerful image on Griffith's filmography, though. It's just so haunting.

I think you should try watching The Birth of a Nation from beginning to end. It is a great film with truly moving moments (or maybe I'm too easy). There is the battle scene which is impressive but can get a little tedious, but... it is a great movie overall, even with all the KKK controversy. (:

And, yes, I believe Broken Blossoms is a very good starting point. It is Griffith's most delicate film. And it's much shorter than his usual after TBOAN! Orphans of the Storm is a nice one too.

I also like The Battle of the Sexes, one of his last movies. It is very interesting to note the differences between Griffith's genuinely American melodrama movie and Murnau's European way in his Sunrise, as both treat basically about the same theme: fidelity, the lack of it, and diabolic women.

Question: will shorts and rewatchs count for the challenge or just newly approached feature films? Or it's up to me?

I think shorts count, as well as movies you've rewatched this year, but if you see the same movie more than once this year, it only counts as one.

I think it depends how you define a short, truthfully I put them on my list as long as they're over 40 minutes.

I've been keeping a separate list of short films that I've seen this year to avoid "clutter." I kept a list for fun on another website last year and I included 7 minute long Looney Tunes cartoons for some reason, skewing my results drastically.

Battleship Potemkin is a must - the Soviets drew a fair bit on Griffith's experiments, but Eisenstein really took it to a new level.
