What is truly unique about this film? Radok directed it in 1950, right after the WW2. But the directing techniques are incredible for that time. Instead of a simple parody of Hilter as in Chaplin's Dictator, Radok let the words of propaganda speak for themselves. A dull, boring voice of reporter is talking pure propaganda and its much more powerful than the Chaplin's way. There also the techniques of so called brief flashes. We see the propaganda documentary(L.Riefenstahl) and there are brief flashes that ridicule the lies of propaganda.(it reminds me Fight club and the brief flashes of penis). To sum it up, Radok is using directing techniques that started to appear in the 60s. He was way ahead. And also his family died in c.camp so it must have been really painful for him to shoot there. He was a real genius and it's pity that the many film critics don't know anything about Radok and his work.
