Los Angeles Times - 03/27/1992
"...It's a fascinating historical document....The film, at its best, uncovers the kinds of visual archival material that makes documentaries an indispensable part of the historical process..."

Product Description:

This disturbing film documents the Nazi philosophy of beauty through violence, highlighting Hitler's views on culture, art and architecture. Includes exclusive archival footage of the last days of the Third Reich, with film shot inside Hitler's infamous bunker.

Plot Synopsis:

"Architecture of Doom" analyzes the warped aesthetic of Adolf Hitler and the top echelon of the Third Reich. Using never-before-seen footage, the film attempts to shed light on the Nazis' obsession with concepts of order and stability borrowed from ancient Greece and Rome. The film also attempts to show how this demented aesthetic led to the banning of such modern artist as Picasso and, more importantly, the systematic annihilation of Jews, Gypsies and homosexuals.
