saturating the world with untruthful information
3 March 2010 | by (Islamabad) – See all my reviews

The content/style and political spin of this documentary should be no surprise to those that are familiar with Mr. Flitton's prior work.

One sided polemic.

Although "The Occult History of the Third Reich" tries hard to impress upon its viewers the importance of curtailing occult practices by big governments it does so in a repetitively boring way which - often resorting to documentary clichés like the cries of a grieving mother to punctuate a point, and distortions of truth all too common in political commentaries.

Production values are frankly pathetic given the amount of money spent on the production.

What is unfortunate is that this subject matter lends itself to a more unbiased hand - something like the recent documentary "Cosmic Conflict: The Origin of Evil" - which I was able to view on Capitol Hill alongside members of the Senate and Congress. If you want to see a more realistic primer explaining the influences of alternative belief systems (occult, paganism, mysticism, etc) on the Nazi ideology - avoid "The Occult History of the Third Reich".
