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.
detailed and fascinating insight into the life and work of a unique and formidable lady. great footage of her and her crew at work, underlining the extent of her artistic and technical achievements
How did I never learn about this woman in school?
If you've never seen this do yourself a favor and take a "PBS moment" and explore the power of the camera and it's application in manipulating human emotions. Especailly during an election season. Art meets politics and the discussions of Leni's degrees of involvement are not answered with this film, but she poses and interesting question at one point should an artist or thier work be held accountable for it's poilitcal/ cultural impact? Do they have a responcibility to society? While the answer might depend upon circumstances I think Japanese filmmaker Kenji Mizoguchi who in the same era being forced by the military to make propoganda entertainment films delivered some of the most "bland" films ever made as an act of passive resistence. Not allowing his art to be used by others for ill purposes. The 47 Ronin is one of the most static films ever made.
Interesante documental sobre la mujer cineasta mas importante en la historia del Cine. Es una lastima que le haya tocado vivir en la epoca y/o paiÂs en que vivio. De no haber sido por eso, ella podriÂa haber hecho aun mas aportes al Cine de los que hizo. Una genio, una lastima.
The film seems to be an accurate enough portrayal of a selfish artist genius.
probably THE most controversial filmmaker of the 20th century, Leni Riefenstahl, 1902-2003.
A fascinating look at the career of one of the most gifted, influential, and morally questionable people in movie history. Incredible!
She was so gifted, but definitely working for the wrong team. A tale of misused talent.
KILLER DOCUMENTARY.. WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE DONE????
