Downfall ★★★

A 2.5 hour movie about Hitler’s last days and the end of WWII. Seems right up my alley, but sadly, I don’t have an encyclopedic knowledge of all the key figures of Hitler’s allies so the many, many names that are thrown out don’t make too much sense, so it can be an overwhelming film at times. But it’s also a movie filled with great performances about a lot of pathetic men and women. I feel no sympathy for these people, even if they movie is trying to make me feel it.
