Joseph Goebbels Hitler’s Minister of Propaganda
Goebbels discusses how Hitler’s power of personality is efficiently distributed through his propoaganda machine, creating fear in their opponents.
„Arguably the most gifted of Hitler’s henchmen, Joseph Goebbels was an enigmatic genius whose successful manipulation of mass political opinion was unprecedented. His rise to power, and that of the Nazi Party itself, will forever stand as one of history’s most terrifying examples of the reach of propaganda, a tool with which Goebbels’s name is virtually synonymous.
In their fascinating documentary, the filmmakers provide a rare and chilling glimpse into a brilliant but toxic mind. Rejecting commentary, they allow Goebbels to speak for himself (in the voice of Kenneth Branagh), via the extensive diaries that he kept from 1924 to 1945.“ — Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times
