The Architecture of Doom

1989 NR

This chilling documentary explores how artistic, cultural and historical trends forged the National Socialist aesthetic, which in turn contributed to the unspeakable horrors of the Holocaust. Swedish-born filmmaker Peter Cohen, whose parents escaped the Nazis, examines Hitler's failed career as an artist, his fascination with Wagner, the Nazi obsession with cleanliness, the paradoxical link between "beauty" and evil in the Third Reich, and more.
