I was very disappointed by this "documentary," and I use the term loosely. At the very least I expected to find an unobjective account of Reifenstahl's career and her role in making films for the third reich. What I found was a biased attempt to discredit her life and career and even flat out say that she is only getting respect now because of her age. It also suggests that she had an affair with Hilter by showing us that he sent her red roses once when her film opened. I found the scripted narration very opinionated as well, which made the whole program feel preachy and like an extremist's newsletter. In my opinion, She is an amazing filmmaker who deservea all recognition the same as all of the American filmmakers who made propagand Roosevelt to boose national morale such as the films promoting the building of TVA.
