Hitler - up close, personal, and in color.
15 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This documentary is proof that no matter how hard anyone tries to play Hitler in a movies, the performance comes off as contrived and superficial, especially when compared to the actual person. The camera, in this case filming in color, does not lie. It catches Hitler in various situations, revealing a person who is a study in contrasts - personally cordial yet capable of committing the most outrageous crimes; playful with children, yet capable of launching the most destructive wars; keeping a beautiful woman in his home, yet being sexually distant. Such contradictions cannot be dramatized without making them seem artificial. Hence, the need for this documentary to convey the facts and reveal the kind of person who was responsible for so much chaos. That the movie is in color gives it a contemporary feel, as if Hitler is around today. It also shows that those in charge of recording the Fuhrer belied that what they were recording would be part of a legacy of greatness. They were partly correct - Hitler did leave a legacy, but not of greatness, rather of wanton destruction and despair.
