Rudiger Suchsland’s documentary, “Hitler’s Hollywood,” chronicling German cinema during the Nazi era has the perverse effect of making you want to watch many of the films under discussion.
It’s understandable considering the fascinating clips on display from scores of movies, and that’s only from a fraction of the 1,000 or so produced between 1933 and 1945.
Providing important historical and sociological context, “Hitler’s Hollywood” emerges as a compelling cinematic essay that should be essential viewing for cinephiles and history buffs alike.
The documentary is receiving its U.S. theatrical premiere at the Film Forum theatre in New York City.
