"The real richness of the documentary lies in its extraordinary use of old newsreels and photographs."
A controversial hit in its native Germany, this documentary chronicles the rise of Adolf Hitler from failed art student to absolute ruler of Germany. Less interested in the horrors of the Third Reich than in Hitler's masterful ability to maintain control over the German public, the film employs rare archival footage to examine the roots of Hitler's spellbinding grip on the masses with his own diatribes, and the powerful images of Nazism.
