A silent masterpiece still making a big noise ★★★★
Back this month in a meticulous digital restoration, on a screen large enough to handle its variously color-tinted insanities, the silent landmark "Intolerance" is everything a movie can be. It's grand, grandiose, ambitious to the point of absurdity, sluggish here, propulsive there, and then finally so propulsive resistance is futile.
