This is a very strange and unclassifiable movie. For one thing, German writer-director Hans-Jurgen Syberberg's project has a running time of 407 minutes -- you heard right: almost seven hours. For another, it is not an ordered narrative, a biography, or anything like that; Syberberg uses documentary footage, puppetry, skits, and all sorts of what we might call "video collage" to discuss the fascination of the German nation for Hitler -- before, during, and since. By turns compelling, laughable, and boring, this mammoth project takes a unique stab at one of the 20th century's greatest and most mysterious human (and inhuman) phenomenons.
