Aro Recommended Hitler - A Film From Germany

 

USA 1978, 420 minutes
Dir. Hans-Jurgen Syberberg
In German with English subtitles
Rating: [M]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Drama / History

Topics: Experimental.

 

Aroview: An epic and highly original exploration of the sources of German fascism, in which experimentalist dir. Syberberg weaves a tapestry of surreal juxtapositions where Nazi emblems and persons arise out of the collective heap of popular culture - including Charlie Chaplin films, Punch and Judy skits, Wagnerian opera and Christmas carols.

Not for the faint-hearted or impatient, this grotesque dream-vision of history has enough arcania and black humour packed in to seem like a cinematic version of a Salvador Dali canvas. Available in a two-tape set.
