  • Critic Reviews of "Way Down East"

    March 26, 2009

    With the gathering together of a relatively small cast and less than half a dozen stellar film artists, D.W. has taken a simple, elemental, old-fashioned, bucolic melodrama and milked it for 12 reels of absorbing entertainment.

    Time Out
    January 26, 2006

    [Lillian Gish's] virtuoso performance makes the heroine's growth from gullible innocence to bitter experience credible.

    Washington Post
    January 01, 2000

    What's amazing is that so much of Gish's tough, funny, intuitive performance, particularly in the film's middle section as she bears her illegitimate child, transcends time, place and technology.

    Chicago Reader
    January 01, 2000

    Through his star, Lillian Gish, Griffith gives the story an emotional power that lifts this 1920 silent feature to the level of a folktale; it becomes something simple, strong, and timeless.

    Radio Times
    August 12, 2014

    Justly celebrated for the climactic sequence where Gish, drifting unconscious on a raft of ice in a storm, is rescued by Barthelmess, the film offers many less obvious moments that are just as memorable.

    August 19, 2013

    Spectacular to look at, emotionally engaging and with a conclusion that still sends a shiver down the spine.

    August 06, 2012

    One of Griffith's most rousing visions of film as visual-emotional ebb and flow, connection and rupture

    Combustible Celluloid
    January 07, 2012

    This is melodramatic soap opera at its most blatant and at its very best.
    July 25, 2007

    If you are not moved at the scene of Gish baptizing her dead baby, then you should check the obituaries of your local paper to see if you are listed.

    Ozus' World Movie Reviews
    May 27, 2007

    Old-fashioned bucolic soap opera doesn't translate well to modern-times.

    Classic Film and Television

    Classic feminist film

    TV Guide
    May 24, 2003

    The movie is today noted chiefly for its legendary climactic episode: a harrowingly realistic sequence in which the hero hurdles a succession of floating ice blocks to save the heroine from being washed over the falls.
