Critic Reviews for Wonderful, Horrible Life of Leni Riefenstahl
... 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.
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.
Audience Reviews for Wonderful, Horrible Life of Leni Riefenstahl
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.
