5.0 out of 5 stars Leni's Triumph., 24 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Triumph Of The Will (DVD) 2010 (DVD)
Film-maker Leni Riefenstahl made this documentary on the orders of Adolf Hitler: capturing the 1934 Nuremburg Rally in all its pomp, ceremony, farce and fear. The film is, by turns, fascinating, frightening, alluring and repulsive. No matter what one's own personal, political views or persuasion, it is difficult at times not to feel attracted by the clear, mass-hypnotic power Hitler is seen to undeniably have over the assembled thousands in this documentary. Everything is orchestrated and played out to such an extent that terms such as "hysteria" and "fanaticism" seem scarcely appropriate to apply. Footage of Hitler's speeches during the rally are simultaneously compelling and disturbing. All of the other infamous, prominent members of the Nazi Party are, of course, also featured - all in their own way falling over themselves in their own speeches to praise and praise again their Fuhrer. This is pantomime and nightmare in one. A priceless historical document detailing one of the darkest periods of the last century.
