... it is her unforgettable and, for many, unforgivable achievements in behalf of Hitler that give the program its force.
This is more often self-portrait than portrait; like Hitler in Riefenstahl's Triumph of the Will, she's presented as a fully formed deity without family background or ideology save a reverence for beauty and strength.
Sometimes clunky but consistently fascinating.
Overly long, but fascinating.
This movie is fascinating in so many different ways: As the story of an extraordinary life, as the reconstruction of the career of one of the greatest of film artists, as the record of an ideological debate, as a portrait of an amazing old woman.
A riveting docu about the controversial filmmaker who made some great propaganda art for Hitler
Overlong examination of the life of an enigmatic, willful, disengenuous, fascinating, influential and enormously gifted filmmaker.
Fascinating documentary about controversial director Len Riefenstahl.
A riveting and encyclopaedic biography of an extraordinary woman. But it also poses heavy questions. Can art ever be isolated from its political context? Are Riefenstahl's claims about her political innocence valid?
Mueller's dialectical approach allows him to expose many half-truths (and a few outright lies) by adducing contrary evidence; by the film's end, Riefenstahl's apologia emerges clearly as an elaborate mythification of self and history.
Riefenstahl masterfully dissects her own Triumph of the Will and forcefully denies that artists bear any special political responsibility.
A wonderful, fascinating documentary on the infamous German director, possibly the greatest female filmmaker in history.
An overlong but fascinating documentary about this remarkable filmmaker who mastered her techniques better than many directors, yet not only was limited as an artist (in terms of ideals) but also spent her life denying her guilt for collaborating with a genocidal regime.
