  1. An astonishing human, political, and historical document.
  2. This lone, fallen Nazi's obsessive distance from his actions is enough to give The Specialist a lingering chill.
  3. 80
    An austere and fascinating documentary.
  4. 75
    It's a worthwhile film both for history buffs and people who are still learning.
  5. The Specialist allows Eichmann to convict himself, not of complicity in the Holocaust -- to that he pleads guilty, by reason of nationalism -- but as a man unfazed by his own inhumanity.
  6. Reviewed by: Ken Fox

    Presents the salient points of this troubling case with gripping concision.
  7. What's most conspicuously missing is the kind of background information needed to assess many of Eichmann's statements.
