By Tanya
Format:VHS Tape
Jewish American journalist, Yaron Svoray (played brilliantly in an uncharacteristically serious role by Oliver Platt), went undercover in Germany to do a piece on skinheads, but soon discovered there was more to the movement than was apparent on the surface. He stayed on and along with Nick Taylor produced an incredible and disturbing book about his experience, "In Hitler's Shadow". This film by HBO is based on that book.
Keeping his identity secret in the violent world of neo-nazism was not only difficult but extrememly dangerous, for both him and the people who helped him, but the information he uncovered was shocking to say the least. The seemingly unco-ordinated acts of racial and ethnic violence which were and are increasing in that country (and elsewhere) were anything but disorganised. Yaron discovered the organisation went right to the top. German political and business luminaries, many of whom were Nazis in the 30s and 40s, were in fact sponsoring and co-ordinating violent right wing action groups, privately encouraging nazi doctrine while publicly denying it.
This film is a must-see for anyone interested in the rights and equality of all human beings. If you thought the Nazis were old news, think again. It is a sad footnote to Yaron's research that little action has been taken in light of what he uncovered at great personal risk, but it only makes it all the more imperative that as many people as possible find out about it.

5.0 out of 5 stars review of dvd 24 Jan 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
the film was generally good. The story, however, showed to much
stereotyping of the 'right' ( 'skinheads', etc ) overemphasis on the
' the poor immigrants', etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars infiltrator 20 Jan 2004
Format:DVD
The infiltrator is truley a master piece, the directors depiction of the neo nazis is what i believe to be the most accurate of all time in a movie and Oliver Platt plays a truley mind blowing role. I strongley recommend any one over the age of 18 to see the movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars TRUE - TRUER THAN WE WANT TO BELIEVE 10 May 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
The person from Seattle, WA must have been sleeping during the film and if he does not believe these things happen he lives in a fantasy world. The following reviews says it all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Passionate true account of journalist turned Nazi-Hunter. 11 Mar 2000
By Eat The Rich Books - Published on Amazon.com
Based on the true story of Yaron Svoray, an Israeli freelancereporter living in the US. "The Infiltrator" recounts Svoray'sinfiltration of Nazi-sympathizers in Germany and beyond.
Oliver Platt plays Svoray, and does a good job in a very serious role. But Svoray's self-imposed mission, with the cooperation and support of the Wiesenthal Center is a Bunyonesques task, and, he is somewhat ill-equipped. If the film initially is to show us how direct exposure to the atrocities of Nazism might fuel unbridled fire within a person, Jewish or otherwise, then it fails in act one.
It's exposition regarding the state of Nazism today, is important, somewhat startling, and much more dramatic. That a Jewish reporter could infiltrate this infra-structure is somewhat unbelievable, but it serves to validate Svoray's passion.
All in all, the film struggles in no-man's land between documentary and thriller, battling to fill time between real life events. Curiously, actor Arliss Howard takes a major role as an Israeli agent-he will go on to play Mossad operative Peter Malkin in the bio-pic `The Man Who Captured Eichmann (1996)".
Svoray's story is compelling, sadly the film gives us a less than satisfying conclusion. A worthwhile watch, nonetheless. END

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie, wrong choice for main character. 25 July 2003
By A. Vegan - Published on Amazon.com
Based on a true story, Yaron Svoray (Oliver Platt) an Israeli freelance journalist goes to Germany to write an article about the rising Neo Nazi movement. While visiting a Turkish refugee camp a gang of skinheads attack. When the police arrive, he is mistakenly arrested which gives the skinheads the impression that he is a sympathiser for the Nazi cause. I can't see this part as being believable. It's one thing to try and "hang out" with the skinheads but it's very, very unlikely that some new guy is ever going to be taken to meet people who are important to the cause. Yaron sees the opportunity and slowly infiltrates the group. He is appalled and disgusted by what he sees, but he's determined to dig deeper.
I found Oliver Platt to be a terrible choice for this movie. He's sloppy looking and rather annoying.

4.0 out of 5 stars ok so the movie is not that believable- but the message is clear neo-nazis are taking control!! 15 May 2007
By Humberto Mejia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I just seen the movie in Max Prime, and I sure can relate to the reviewers who said that the choise of actor and weakness in the plot make this unbelievable- but lets focus on substance! neo-nazis have taken over, be it white supremacist in the US (from KK to who knows what), actual neo-puristanist at the white house or the fact that Germany is reacting to its loss at II WW.. to make matter worst, we have the perfect excuse of the terrorist act of 09/11 enforced by a patriot Act that places all powers to judicial prosecutors of whatever they consider un-patriotic..

The whole concep of a free society has been loss and we are criticizing a movie for its weak choosing of the main actor??? Am I the only one smelling the coffee??

Ok, I can hear the white supremacist saying that such films can exists because of the jewish wing that has bought congress, still, something does not add up.. I am not a religious zeaolot of islam, xchristianity or judaism (or any religion at all).. I believe in a secular state, wher freedom of thought, religion and thought are permitted acording to our western evolution ogf thought.. all of that is going down the drain and nobody seems to care.. next thing you know I will have to seek political asylum in Israel..

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good story of the German underground 11 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Oliver Platt (Lake Placid, Executive Decision, Three Musketeers) stars as real-life Israeli would-be hero Yaron Svoray, who tried to expose the worldwide neo-Nazi underground. Also starring Michael Byrne and Julian Glover, who both played Nazis in the third Indiana Jones film, reprising their malevolent roles here. One of the best HBO original movies: raw, frightening and fairly suspenseful.
