utterly pointless artless collection of clips
22 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

there are no reviews of this film? strange. but then, what is there to say? a lot of pointless footage with scant substance. I watched for 40 minutes, halfway through, we are taken chronologically through 9 years by this point. we hear about 2 minutes total of speeches from der fuhrer, the rest is a random collection of beat up clips of crowded streets, the occasional rural idyll. either the rest of the film is action packed, full filled and crowded to the rafters with information of some kind.... or it continues as it began for the first half, pretty much devoid of substance and utterly lacking in any power whatsoever. I'm amazed at the high rating of this empty snoozefest.
