A shocking picture of Adolph Eichmann's psyche
3 December 1999 | by (Miami & Sao Paulo, BR) – See all my reviews

EIN SPEZIALIST, a montage of original footage from the 1961 Jerusalem trials of Nazi henchman Adolf Eichmann, is a horrifying film. That a man who is seemingly so normal could have been the "specialist", who organized one of modern history's greatest crimes is so disturbing that it leaves one thinking what, if anything, really separates us humans from animals.
