A different and disturbing look at the rise of the Nazi party, Lutz Becker's documentary is unique in that it tries to stay as objective as possible, seeking to make the viewing experience like being a neutral bystander to the events of the years 1918-1933 in Germany. Using mostly newsreel footage and clips of features from the era, Becker provides a kaleidoscopic view of the Germany and the many factors that led to the rise of the Socialist Nationalist Party. Of course, Hitler occupies a prominent place in this documentary, and there is some startling footage of him when he was a political neophyte, watching the extremist Nazi party with interest. Startling in its vision of a ravaged Germany trying to fight its way out of poverty after WWI, THE DOUBLE HEADED EAGLE is chilling in its objective view of the Nazi party as it climbs to power, feeding off the desperation of its country.
