The Avenging Conscience
Dir. D.W. Griffith (1914). Griffith's last normally scaled project before he embarked on his epic The Birth of a Nation, this impressive thriller is especially notable for its central portion, a dream sequence extraordinary for the period that makes use of dramatic lighting effects and compositions derived from 19th century paintings.
