Critics reviews

The beauty of WAY DOWN EAST lies less in its construction than in its patina—the spiritual conviction, the sincerity and simplicity of the melodrama, the unflagging correctness of each shot and gesture, and above all the ethereal evocation of rural Maine, albeit by way of Griffith’s mammoth studio in Mamaroneck, New York.

Finally, [Gish’s character is] the tiny figure splayed on the frozen river as it cracks into a jigsaw of floes, one of Griffith’s most rousing visions of film as visual-emotional ebb and flow, connection and rupture.
