Hans-Jurgen Syberberg: HITLER-A FILM FROM GERMANY aka OUR HITLER (1977)
Well, it looks like we finally made the mistake other people ran to this country to escape. The first time the first week of a new president felt like the first week after 9/11. And it does. Acquaint yourself with what comes next with this epic Brechtian phantasmagoric meditation not so much on Hitler as the shape of the scar he made in the German psyche; from 1977, introduced with a reading of the famous essay about it by my personal goddess Susan Sontag.
"Eternity with Beelzebub, and all his hellish instruments of death, will be a picnic compared to five minutes with me and this pencil." - E. Blackadder, 1791 Questionable
