Movie Info

FINAL ACCOUNT is an urgent portrait of the last living generation of everyday people to participate in Adolf Hitler's Third Reich. Over a decade in the making, the film raises vital, timely questions about authority, conformity, complicity and perpetration, national identity, and responsibility, as men and women ranging from former SS members to civilians in never-before-seen interviews reckon with -- in very different ways -- their memories, perceptions and personal appraisals of their own roles in the greatest human crimes in history.

  • I am fascinated by movies and books that push aside our view of history, one informed by hindsight, and take us to what it was like at the time it was happening.

  • Final Account is made from of a fraction of what he got - perhaps not more than a dozen or so interviews - but it's a monumental achievement, an implacable and revealing record of the corruption of a generation.

  • At first I felt a little put-upon, but the aggregation of multiple details forms a terrifying and hideous picture.

    May 25, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The ringing message throughout "Final Account" comes from the famous quote attributed to Edmund Burke, "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."

    May 24, 2021 | Full Review…
  • Holland reduces interviews to snippets and sound bites and turns the work of investigation and commemoration into a mere survey.

    May 24, 2021 | Full Review…
  • An invaluable documentary that hears the reflections of former soldiers, guards and prison camp workers...
