It seems to me that it should be hard to make a documentary about the Nazi war trials sound like a propaganda film, yet Howard Goldin did it with ease. The documentary uses actual footage from the trials, as well as both US and captured German film to piece together the events of World War II and the aftermath. Unfortunately, the narration is often campy, making it sound as if the film doesn’t take the subject matter seriously. The best (worst?) example of this is at the end, when the director issues a warning to “all future warmongers.” Did he really think that Osama bin Ladin was going to watch this, much less listen to his warning? Black & white.
