A movie that has gone down in cinema legend as a partially lost masterpiece, which I today found more interesting than entertaining.

THE BIRTH OF A NATION (1915)
It’s the very first blockbuster, but unfortunately I can’t emphasize enough how racist it is. However racist you think it is, it is way more racist than that.
GOING MY WAY (1944)
Bing Crosby plays a laid-back, musical priest in this very laid-back musical that was a huge hit in the middle of World War II but mostly forgotten today.
Maybe the first big blockbuster, somehow still leaving viewers flabbergasted a century later. Also one long missive about “cancel culture,,” basically.
