Hitler's Diaries |
There are few historical figures who have had as profound an effect on the collective
consciousness of the "civilized" world, as Adolf Hitler. Hitler and the Nazis were masters at
incorporating the arts and the media not only for the purposes of political propaganda,
but to profoundly influence and shape the collective unconscious of the people. In some
respects, the Nazi movement was pure "theater" and could be likened to a "Hollywood Extravaganza"
complete with awe inspiring music, costumes, makeup, actors, goose stepping dance numbers, pagan rituals, and, of
course, sex and incredible violence.
"Hitler's Diaries" is completely unique and consists of incredibly graphic
and visually stunning imagery. There are no "voice overs," no "talking heads," and no experts
offering their opinions. Instead, the film stars and is narrated by Adolf Hitler, and consists of
authentic and often rare Nazi film footage and photographs. There has never been a more
authentic film on the rise and fall of Adolf Hitler.
Viewers should beware: Hitler's Diaries is also incredibly violent and horribly graphic. Unlike
all other films which often sanitize Nazi atrocities and the horrors of war, Hitler's Diaries
is reality to the extreme: Soldiers are killed in battle. Civilians are bombed and machine gunned
as they run through burning cities and down dusty roads. Men, women, and children are
stripped naked and shot. Women and men are dragged to the scaffolds and hung by the neck.
Jews are rounded up, herded into ditches and executed by Nazi firing squads. Murder and
death is everywhere, for that is the reality of the horrors of war and the Nazi regime of Adolf
Hitler's Diaries is more than just mindless, horrific violence. Relying on rare
photographs and Nazi film footage of Hitler and Nazi Germany, Hitler's Diaries explains why
Hitler believed he had been chosen by "Divine Providence" to conquer Europe and to drive out
the Jews, and how he employed terror, murder, propaganda, mystical symbols, religious
rituals, and mass psychology, to rise from the gutters, gather a fanatical following, take power,
and then lead a great and cultured nation into a genocidal world war.
Hitler's Diaries tells his story from his perspective, as Hitler saw himself and as his
