Goofs

In several places, the stock footage being shown does not match the narration. For example, there's mention of how the Nazis had to get rid of the SA, yet they show pictures of marching SS troopers and a discussion of how mentally challenged children were exterminated is shown with footage of the Warsaw Ghetto.

Very interesting
24 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I honestly thought at first that the documentary must have exaggerated the role that cult practices played in the Third Reich- it starts off by claiming that the Nazis believed they were the descendants of Atlantis, which left me smirking. But the film does a very good job of tying the "Nazi religion" into the Nazi death camps, eugenics programs, and propaganda. It does flag a bit when dealing with astrology near the end, and I would have liked to have learned more about the psychological effect of the realization that the "Master Race" had been defeated. But much of the film is fascinating. It also includes clips from films of Nazi rituals and events that are just jaw-dropping. They make the Nazi party look like the biggest cult of the twentieth century- which, according to the film, it pretty much was.

One point that I would have liked the film to have clarified is that Otto Rahn's death is believed to have been a suicide. Rahn had been assigned to a year of guard duty at Dachau and afterward seems to have been disturbed at the realization of what his nation had become.

Other than that, this is an excellent film- disturbing without being exploitative, and full of details but rarely boring.
