This snappy and thorough documentary offers an engrossing and illuminating portrait on the making of the first-rate Nazisploitation indie winner "Blitzkrieg: Escape from Stalag 69." Director/co-writer Keith J. Crocker acknowledges that "Stalag 17" and "Mark of the Devil" were a major influences on his picture and wanted to depict the violence in a stark and unflinching manner which would enable the audience to feel the victims' pain. Co-writer/production designer Keith Matturro notes that "Blitzkrieg" pays due homage to 40's World War II potboilers and 70's exploitation fare alike. Charles Esser describes the character of Helmut Schultz as an overgrown child who will do anything to get love from other people. The cast was understandably mixed in their feelings about participating in the project: Gordana Jenell was afraid the film might glorify Nazism or nationalism, but agreed to act in the picture because her character gets killed, Marjie Kelley relished playing a sassy Pam Grier type, Tatyana Kot points out that in reality she's nothing like her fiercely self-reliant and resilient Natasha character, Steve Montague wanted to do the movie because it has the potential to become some kind of cult feature, Brenda Cooney saw the flick as basically a comedy, and Steph Van Vlack hopped on board because she was excited about working with Crocker. Crocker was thrilled to cast various Europeans in substantial roles because of their strong understanding of the concept of war. David Meyers confesses that his bathtub sex scene with Kot was a very intense day. Make-up artist John Farley absolutely loved working on the film (he dug the controversial subject matter) and takes special pride in the notorious castration scene. Besides the lively and enjoyable interviews, we also get choice clips and behind-the-scenes footage from the movie which was specifically made for a mass audience. Essential viewing for fans of the film.
