I find it weird that there are no user reviews for this film, which is one of the very best of the year. Incomparably better than Museum Hours, an okay film which gets an 86 Metascore while Arendt gets a mere 67. All aspects of Arendt areI find it weird that there are no user reviews for this film, which is one of the very best of the year. Incomparably better than Museum Hours, an okay film which gets an 86 Metascore while Arendt gets a mere 67. All aspects of Arendt are superb: script, direction, cinematography, acting, you name it. And, of course, the subject is one of the most fascinating women of all time. What's not to like? Expand

I've only read one book by Hannah Arendt -- very cerebral, needless to say. It's fascinating to see a side of her that also touches on her warmth and her marriage and her friendships.

It's fascinating to see a side of her that also touches on her warmth and her marriage and her friendships. Fascinating, also, in this time of the 24-hour news cycle, to think about her take on "the banality of evil" as personified by Eichmann, and the complexity of trying to explain that to people who demanded a one-dimensional portrait of a monster. Barbara Sukowa -- here middle-aged, dowdy and in the ugliest of '60s wardrobes -- gives a performance of great subtlety and humanity. A thought-provoking film. Expand

Anchored by a perfect performance from Barbara Sukowa, HANNAH ARENDT is a truly rare accomplishment--a film that seamlessly mingles the personal and professional while totally zeroing in on Arendt's philosophical conceptions. So many films about artists, great thinkers have failed in capturing the human being behind the art or in the opposite direction, ignoring the philosophy to depict the personal only. In HANNAH ARENDT all is combined magnificently, providing a 360 degree view of a truly great human being and showing us how the personal, political, and professional are all combined. Expand
