  1. Junge's testimony is a salutary reminder that Hitler was like other people in ways, and that the evil he manifested could visit us again if more civilized humans don't remain watchful.
  2. Makes for fascinating cinema.
  3. Isn't much of a movie, but it's a whale of a story.

    Viewers hoping for new revelations will have to be content with learning that Hitler suffered from severe stomach problems. Yet there's much more here than a trickle of unsatisfying tidbits.
  5. The movie, in the end, is devastating because of the banality it reveals, and because its terseness and plainness cut a mass killer down to size.
  6. Riveting and heartstoppingly fine documentary.
  7. Reviewed by: David Edelstein

    This seesaw of shame and self-justification might not speak for the most murderous segment of the German populace, but it's a peculiarly eloquent representation of the silent, obedient majority.
