There's a great deal to process and absorb here. We are the images we make of ourselves and our times, for better or worse.
A sad story all around.
A cavalcade of images, icons and ideas that, while less innovative, are every bit as eye-popping in their own way as The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, Nosferatu, and Metropolis are in theirs.
Fascinating for history and film buffs alike.
Part of what's alarming about "Hitler's Hollywood" is that it's easier to be seduced by these comedies and melodramas, at least in excerpts, than it is to endure Leni Riefenstahl's propaganda film "Triumph of the Will" today.
Hitler's Hollywood is an essential critical work, not least because it shows just how apparently safe propaganda appears.
It's fascinating stuff, not least because this era of film history is rarely explored, especially in formats as accessible as this.
Suchsland has created an important film which documents a strange time in the history of world cinema through the lens of authoritarianism and dictatorship.
Suchsland is exploring the past while challenging us to apply his method to the present. He is implying that we will better understand who we are, and where we are going, if we awaken from our trances and look upon our own dreams and nightmares.
This deep look at the trove of films made by the Nazis as part of their propaganda machine is fascinating and also weirdly familiar in its output.
Suchsland's verbose essay film never successfully surpasses the realm of mere academic curiosity.
"Hitler's Hollywood" is a nightmare and a warning in the least expected package: a cinema studies crash-course. It's up to us in the audience to learn from it.
