Part of what's alarming about "Hitler's Hollywood" is that it's easier to be seduced by these comedies and melodramas, at least in excerpts, than it is to endure Leni Riefenstahl's propaganda film "Triumph of the Will" today. Full Review
New York Times
Rating: 8/10 -- It's fascinating stuff, not least because this era of film history is rarely explored, especially in formats as accessible as this. Full Review
Hitler's Hollywood is an essential critical work, not least because it shows just how apparently safe propaganda appears. Full Review
Suchsland has created an important film which documents a strange time in the history of world cinema through the lens of authoritarianism and dictatorship. Full Review
Hitler's Hollywood is as thorough and informative as a Master Class seminar, if as dry as Melba toast, and the collage of classic images presents snippets of film history that are both beautiful and unsettling. Full Review
A sad story all around. Full Review

From 1933 to 1945, German cinema flourished under the supervision of propagandist Joseph Goebbels. Despite the heavy regulations, the German film industry sought to instill national pride and propel dangerous ideas about war to its citizens. Narrated by Udo Kier, this documentary was directed by Rüdiger Suchsland.
