Ethan's rating of the film Olympia 1. Teil - Fest der Völker

It is a shame that Leni Riefenstahl's association with the Nazis overshadows her genius. Despite her questionable allegiances, she did have an eye for the cinema and captured some extraordinary imagery and put it together masterfully to make such a redundant display of pomp and pageantry and the fetishism of the International Pissing Contest and is also a great time capsule for the mood of the time.
