In Nazi Germany, film was considered a major medium for the Nazi Party propaganda machine. While pure propaganda material was not all that was produced by the domestic film industry, there still was a party line to be followed, especially with Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels having complete control over the content. This film explores a collection of the most significant artists involved in the medium with clips of the major films produced. Furthermore, the major themes and artistic boundaries of Nazi German films are presented from the regime's beginning in 1933 to its total defeat in 1945.

This is a very important documentary. One of the greatest insight that Hitler offered. A film with intense focus. Through showing the background and the impact of the film, director Tommy Williamson made it so that the audience can feel the impact. Director Tommy Williamson has created a beautiful film that covers the entire history of Hitler from the childhood of Hitler to the last day of the Nazi party.

I loved this film. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The premise is simple but what it does is it shows that Nazi Germany in the 1930s was still deeply connected to the Hollywood film industry and it's effects on the Nazi regime and the Hitler Youth. It gives some insight into the complicated relationship between Hitler and Spielberg. It shows how one of Hitler's former army buddies, "Skylark", was instrumental in assisting in the making of the 1936 film "Schindler's List". Skylark, who is Jewish, is shown as a bitter, ex-Nazi who was beaten in front of his son when he found out that his father was about to join the army. He falls in love with a Jewish girl and becomes one of the highest paid film industry figures, using the Hollywood system to keep in power his position. He uses Jewish workers and directors for the film and raises money for Jewish organizations. He is very well connected to the film industry and he gets his movie financed and financed. As a result he manages to get his movie shown in the theaters. In the film we see that one of his Hollywood friends, who is a big star and director, helped finance the film and Skylark was filmed in the studio where the star was shot. It is interesting to see how he uses the system to make money and gets people in the film industry to help him, and how the system kept a lid on the Nazis because he was so powerful. The movie shows the forces that brought Nazi Germany down and how they influenced Hollywood and its effects. Some of the things that are shown in the movie are that Skylark went to Hollywood to get the government to get him out of Germany. He got the government to allow the production of a movie because it was still a sensitive issue at the time, and also the government has been involved in many Nazi films, including the one made by Skylark in the film, in which they are shown killing Jewish people. Spielberg wanted to get his film shown in the states because he was being given Hollywood treatment in Germany. The government wanted to see it because of the people in the US that were affected by the film and the first film they saw was the 1933 movie, "Schindler's List". The government even hired Skylark to help write the screenplay and give him the idea of a "schindler's list" to help the government prove the Nazis. I have watched it many times and enjoy it when I watch it, but I don't think that I am going to re-watch it in the future. This movie shows how Nazi Germany was a very powerful force, and how they used Hollywood to get their way. It shows how they were able to get away with a lot of things because they were at the height of their power. It was sad to see how close to an end they came to this movie because of the young people that were being killed in the film, but it still shows how powerful this country was that they could do so much without the help of the rest of the world.

I liked the Hitler period better in my book, and Hitler did do some really strange things, but what is evident is that Hitler was a really messed up human being. I felt like the scenes were well done, but they weren't realistic, and the scenes were too long and focused more on Hitler and his war. I also felt that the director had a weird sense of fun with the Hitler thing. I know that there were no humans in the movie, but the Nazi's were supposed to be super violent people, and there were lots of really violent moments, including at one point with the children. I mean you have Hitler's wife whipping him, Hitler yelling and punching his opponents, and Hitler hitting a woman's stomach. I think that director Russell should have toned it down a bit and had some very realistic characters instead of just playing a movie with a real-life setting. He probably saw the movie a couple times before the release, but I think he felt bad that he had to make an extremely violent film. I do like the scenes of him drinking, and even his battle with the world with Himmler. I also liked the story, but I think the camera work was distracting. It was also very, very dark and depressing. The idea was great, but there were so many spots where it was very, very difficult to tell what was real and what was in the movie. I think if they were to show more of the good parts of Hitler, it might have been better. I really liked the idea of Hitler getting rid of his servants, but I think the movie missed the point a little. The wife didn't really like him, and I think the men weren't strong enough to take care of him in the end. I also thought the Holocaust was a little exaggerated, and the character Hitler didn't seem really very powerful. I thought the director was trying to put a lot of humor into the movie, but it didn't work. I think the idea of the movie was good, but I think the way the director shot it didn't show it in a good way. I think that if this movie was made at a day time, and only at night, and I only had to look at my clock, then it might have been a better movie. I think a movie should be able to stand up on its own and not depend on the director to make a good movie. I know that they shot this movie in order to make money, but I think they didn't know what they were doing, and I think that they should have let the director take the story as far as he could go and show the movie in a way that was realistic. I don't really recommend this movie. I think you should see it if you want a good movie, but if you have to go in with very little information, then I wouldn't recommend it. I think it's a lot more entertaining to just watch the movie on TV, and then look up the credits to see what the story was.

I knew little about Hitler and what happened during the war in Germany until I was in a Japanese restaurant in Munich, Germany when they told me about this movie. I didn't know any about what it was about but I was intrigued. The way the movie was shot, the old street cameras that showed every single thing that happened, the no words, no strings, no music. I mean, nothing. I love how they have been filmed in this way, I loved how it was filmed, I loved how it was filmed. I watched it and it wasn't just the old street camera footage I love, but actually the whole movie. It was cool. It's a good movie and I recommend it. I gave this 9/10 because I still think it was a bit slow, and I'm still thinking about it a few days later. However, I still think that the movie is good. I'm still thinking about it and wondering how it's going to play out. It's the perfect movie for people who know little about Hitler and who like to think about it. If you want to know more, just watch this movie.

The Nazi films in this doc, are presented as a chronological sequence, alternating with clips of interviews with Hitler's closest associates, the ex-Nazis and others who worked with him in the production of these films. I have to say, I am not familiar with Hitler's public persona before 1933. I do know that Hitler was, however, a bit of a troubled person, and this allowed him the freedom to fabricate the idea of his brother to get support from his political base. This is the most effective way that this would be achieved. This film contains a few clips from several films that Hitler himself had been involved in, but then alternates with interviews of his associates and most of Hitler's family members. The interviews do not reveal much of what Hitler himself had to say, but they reveal his philosophy of life, his detachment from the real world and his need to be all-knowing. This is very intriguing to watch and to read about Hitler, and I would recommend it to anyone who is curious to know more about Hitler's private and public life.

I was in the navy during the WW2. I watched the holocaust documentary and saw the Nazi man at the start of the film was supposed to be about Hitler, but actually was going to start WWIII, I felt the director missed a great opportunity. He made this movie as a tv-movie to save people from Hitler's deception of his "great work" which wasn't true. The SS-men who actually did the holocaust were punished, not Hitler himself. He was in this movie because the director didn't want to be responsible for the Holocaust. Instead of all those who worked for him and are now very well respected by the western world, that movie can never be made, because of all those who have made money out of this part of history.

The role of Anna Weisz as Gertrude Stein is legendary. A talented actress, she was the youngest member of the US Congress, from her days as a child, through her brilliant performance in the 1939 film, "Young Woman of the Year". Anna Weisz is also an outstanding actress, who gave her Oscar for best supporting actress in 1997 for her role in the TV series "The Voice" as Liz Connell. There is a lot of history behind this movie, in terms of how Gertrude Stein came to be in German society and how she came to Germany. From her first appearance in America in 1903, her first visit to Germany in 1903, her relationship with the Nazis, the trials and tribulations of the Weimar Republic, all of these events are documented and narrated. And it is clear that the film was not just made to promote the movie of the year 2006, but to explore and explore the complex political relationships between the Nazi's and the Weimar Republic. This is a great documentary about history. It's a must see!

A tremendous film, dealing with the actual events of WWII as told from the point of view of all people involved. The acting is incredible, everyone was amazing, and made a very realistic and powerful film. Despite not being able to answer any of the questions raised it is still a tremendous film, and I recommend it to everyone.

I watched this movie about 10 times and still keep coming back to it. I have read many reviews and seen many of the same 'sigh.' Of course, most people who comment on the Holocaust all too eloquently at one point or another, have obviously never actually seen this movie. For those who haven't seen it, it's worth seeing. It's one of the few good documentaries I've ever seen.

I am going to skip the parts that weren't important for understanding Hitler, and concentrate on the one that wasn't important: whether or not it was a good movie. Is it a good movie? I'm not so sure. In my opinion, it is a good movie, but it is definitely not a good movie. What makes me think it's not a good movie? I can think of a number of things, but I can't think of many more. The first and most important thing to me is the acting. For me, the only thing I can say about this movie is that it was good. This is because the acting is, by far, the best thing about this movie. The acting is very good, not just in Hitler, but in the other characters as well. It is a little bit cliche, but it was enjoyable. Also, the acting is also very professional. You wouldn't notice if a real actor did a terrible job, and you wouldn't think that a real actor could do a good job, either. All in all, I'm really pleased with the acting in this movie, and I don't think it would be as good if it weren't. Hitler also was the main character in this movie, but that's not what made it good. The thing that made this movie good was the portrayal of the real event, not Hitler. I personally think it was a good movie, and I think that it is definitely worth watching.

Facts, perspective, and theories concerning the "Hitler-Aryan Race" and Jews are being brought to the attention of the world in this exciting documentary. For those who have not heard of the "Aryan Race" before or do not have any history or background information about them this documentary should help. Based on documents, news, essays, archival footage, and interviews from over 100 people, the film is meant to help change minds and minds of those who do not yet understand what it is like to be a Jew in Nazi Germany. Like the film it is a mixture of information that most people would not know about and most people would not understand. Although many people believe that it was this documentary that led to the demise of the Aryan Race, a more detailed study of the facts would indicate otherwise. A very exciting documentary that you should not miss.

It seems that a lot of people aren't well acquainted with the news of WWII and Hitler. This documentary is certainly enlightening on a number of levels. It clearly establishes that Hitler was a brilliant chess player and scientist. In the context of the Cold War, this documentary is quite revealing. Unfortunately, it fails to give the viewer some background to understand Hitler as a man and what makes him tick. The documentary's long-term goal is to provide an answer as to how Hitler could have gone insane and why he did. However, for the most part, the documentary lacks the attention it needs from the viewer. For the viewer to truly understand the impact of Hitler on history, the viewer needs to have had a basic understanding of the history of the 20th century. This documentary doesn't come close to achieving this. I would advise anyone to view this documentary once and perhaps also watch an earlier documentary on the subject of Adolf Hitler. These documentaries are much more in depth.

This is a superb documentary about Adolf Hitler's film and the like, the Nazi regime and the war, before the war ended. It starts with the party before the war, showing the early years with Hitler playing with his hair and Hitler claiming he was the best (this is ironic because his father played in the same role in the film and was nowhere close to Hitler). During the war, they talk about his relationship with his wife Eva Braun and show footage of Hitler mocking the war and the Allies. They show a lot of the war footage, the SS having an "affinity" with Hitler (they even believe he is the Messiah) and Hitler himself being brought up by a Fuhrer, etc. There is a lot of footage of him playing golf and hitting the ball from head to toe with his trusty bat, his lack of mobility, and his obsession with killing Jewish people. I think this was his way of preventing being too influenced by a lot of people that he had defeated and getting back to them. He seemed a bit bored in the end, with the SS and with Eva Braun. This also shows that Hitler's intentions were good, but his treatment of the Jews was what killed him, his lack of social skills, his excessive drinking, and his inability to make any meaningful decisions. I think the Holocaust was a tragedy, but Hitler's treatment of the Jews was what destroyed him, especially with the treatment of his wife. His manipulation of the people and using his material wealth to increase the power of the government was what destroyed him. Hitler was able to manipulate the public at large, and by getting money out of them and then using it to buy power, he basically made his own power his own, by gaining the control of the people and leaving his sister and wife behind in the dust. Hitler's paranoia and obsession with money seemed to come from the Jewish people. He wanted to keep them all down so that he would have power to rule. Hitler was obsessed with money. The war was over, and Hitler was forced to retreat from his own power. It also shows how Mussolini seemed to be a scapegoat, with the downfall of Germany having nothing to do with him, except that Hitler needed to manipulate the masses. The film shows Hitler at the end of the war, what the Nazis actually did. It shows the events of the Nazis going over all the lives of Jews, showing them murdering Jewish people in cold blood. It also shows the alleged effort to solve the Jewish problem, with the sending of more Jewish people to the camps and a political movement of the SS to help Hitler repress the Jews. This film has a lot of great documentaries about the war and war crimes, so you really need to see this film. I have two major issues with the documentary, first is the fact that it is incredibly slow and I think this is because of the doc, the difference between him and the people he was controlling. The film really slows down at the end of the film with his son and the film then goes to a slower version of the documentary to try and show his wife's legacy. The second is that the person who edited the film was telling the truth, and most people will not understand this, so they edited it the wrong way. I think that's the best thing the film could have been, since the truth is not presented in a way that shows Hitler as a good man. Hitler is evil and there is no way that he is good.

This is the least biased documentary I have ever seen on the Hitler Film 'Mein Kampf'. A must watch for anyone who is serious about the Nazis. Hitler's first film in the movie is a highlight of this documentary. It is brilliant. This is the second best documentary I have ever seen on the Nazis. Everything that the Nazis did in their careers is shown in this film. The only thing that is left out is the horrible war crimes that the Nazis committed. That is the only thing that is left out. The Hitler films are really well made and have great footage of Hitler talking about his films. This is a must watch. It is actually the best documentary on the Nazis. This is the best documentary on the Nazis that I have ever seen. It is very good. It is probably my favorite documentary of all time.

I am an historian, and I know this movie really better than most people, and I've seen it hundreds of times. It is by far the most entertaining movie I have ever seen. It will make you feel like you're really there, actually in that place. It is honest and real and makes you think. It also makes you smile, because you don't believe that those people were such bad people. It is just a movie, and it is very entertaining. This is why I liked the movie so much. To watch something that is really true, and it is well-acted and well-made. This is really worth seeing, and I hope everyone else also enjoys it as much as I did.

Who is Ben Stein? Why does he have a Guggenheim Fellowship? The answer to all these questions is very simple. But it's something which is so important that I will not go any further. I really wanted to like this movie but as a whole I think it was disappointing. I didn't like the soundtrack either. In fact I did not like the score at all. I would like to comment on the cinematography. The documentary style documentary style documentary style (especially in the start) which was a bit too boring. I thought that they could have made a bit more use of that. There were a couple of shots that were good, for example in the beginning when the photographer is out walking, that was just magnificent. Unfortunately the general style that they had was more of a documentary style. Other than that I thought it was too slow paced. I felt like they could have made more of the other interviews too. In addition the end, which was such a big question for me, was kind of cliche. It seemed a bit forced. Other than that I really enjoyed the documentary style. I liked that the interviews were also long as well. It was very interesting. Overall I would say that this was an interesting documentary style movie. I would recommend it for everyone who is interested in this subject. It is also a good watch for people who are interested in this subject.

There are very few documentaries out there, that really tell the stories of some of the most influential people in history. This film is one of them. It is a unique, personal and personal, look at Hitler's "valuable" discoveries, in which his leading ideological companionship with Hitler is included. What makes this film so special is the way in which it tells these stories. We see both sides of the debates. We get to hear both sides. We get to see both sides from different perspectives. And, unlike many documentaries, we get to see that the biases and opinion of the other side are only as strong as the individual side. This film shows us the many personalities that led Hitler and his followers to their goals, and shows us how that friendship led to that hatred. The film shows us all sides, and how Hitler was motivated by power, while the other members of his circle were motivated by ideas. The film shows how this ideology of "total war" would lead to the Holocaust, and why Hitler eventually turned to the path of one of the most evil ideologies in history. Although I do not want to give away too much of the plot, I will just say that it is a very special film. It is a very unique, very personal and personal look at a very special people, and what is often called a "cult leader". It is a film that is not for everyone. But for those that can appreciate the contribution that a film is able to make in helping you see the world in a new way. This film will definitely add to your movie collection.

Hollywood is a world full of tragedy and corruption. The more that evil prevails, the more it tends to intensify and escalate. The Holocaust is still with us. Nevertheless, there are many places where genuine artistic expressions can be found. The film speaks for several times against Jewish involvement in the making of the famous film "Schindler's List." This film was a dramatic portrayal of an evil man who killed millions of Jews. Even so, the film was a success because it was shown as a "Danish film." Its true message was the beauty of life and how much people can be inspired and inspired by real and kind things. The director, Anita Marden, proved that she has much talent, but she has to concentrate on film making in order to find it. Marden finds it in films made by great actors such as Woody Allen, Barry Levinson, and even Clint Eastwood. She found it in film makers of all stripes. She has to concentrate on this, because her work is very much worth watching. This film will appeal to many, especially to those of us who are drawn to the film "Schindler's List."

I must admit that when I first saw this documentary, I was quite unimpressed. I thought that it was an old BBC documentary, and I felt that the Soviet Union should never have supported a regime that openly declared its military superiority. However, after watching the film more closely, I was very much impressed. The film illustrates the USSR's repressed people, who had no voice and were denied any access to the media, education or most social services. At the time the USSR was openly a dictatorship, and it was not until the late 1990s that political freedoms began to be restored in the country. These are the bare essentials of the narrative. The cinematography was stunning, the camera work was gritty and it was shown from a viewpoint that very few documentaries do. The only flaw of the film was the difficulty that this documentary made for the viewer, as many of the scenes were very graphic and some very long. This was the main flaw of the film, and was the main reason I did not give it a ten. It was a remarkable documentary. I have watched it three times, and I think it is still an excellent film. Watch this film if you are interested in the totalitarian regimes of the 20th century.

This movie really amazes me, especially for being in 1971. It features some of the worst Nazi propaganda ever produced. The film shows how some very confused and questionable people contributed to a great evil. The film highlights how the film industry has a historical and cultural bias and how bad they are. The film is great and I highly recommend it. Rating: 10
