"The most extraordinary film I have ever seen," says Susan Sontag of director Hans-Jurgen Syberberg's epic nightmare rumination on Adolf Hitler, the cultural mechanisms underlying his mythic rise, and the effect he continues to wield over Germany. In a series of 22 tableaux set on a soundstage, Syberberg makes use of puppets, props, a thundering Wagnerian soundtrack, and rear-screen projection to evoke the origins of the Third Reich, Nazi Germany, and the disturbing aftermath. Neither a feature film nor a conventional documentary, Hitler: Ein Film aus Deutschland is a seven-hour avant-garde fever dream on coming to terms with Nazism. Originally distributed by Francis Coppola's Zoetrope Studios, this notorious film was hailed by Coppola as a work that rendered all other films of the time obsolete. In German with English subtitles.
