  • The Architecture of Doom

    1989. Sweden. Produced, written, edited, and directed by Peter Cohen. Narrated by Bruno Ganz. Using Nazi archival materials (much of which, we believe, is presented [in this work] for the first time), the Swedish filmmaker makes an intellectually provocative case for his thesis that National Socialism was an aesthetic movement—that WWII and the genocide of the Jews and others directly resulted from the Nazis’ perverse notion of “beauty through violence.” Courtesy First Run Features. In German; English subtitles. 119 min.
