THE ARCHITECTURE OF DOOM

A breakthrough in the crowded field of documentaries on the Ilird Reich, this acclaimed expose does not merely tell what the Nazis did it reveals why. Why the fascist hierarchy contained so many failed artists; why composer Richard Wagner became The Fuhrer's favorite; why Zyklon B poison gas was actually symbolic; why cowboy novels molded the action at the Russian front. This is the Nazi aesthetic, the bizarre core of Hitler's theories revealed by scrutiny of the period's arts and architecture. Through rare newsreel and propaganda footage the Nazis damn themselves in their own words. The effect is more chilling than fiction, remarkably so as director Peter Cohen shows not a single dead body or distinct act of violence.
