The Captain Regie Robert Schwentke
Filming in faux-documentary black-and-white, the writer and director, Robert Schwentke, creates decoratively illustrative images to depict unspeakable horrors in fulsome detail. Despite one clever scene, in which Willi and the camp commander duel for power in telephone calls to Nazi officials, the movie is nearly devoid of psychology, context, and ideas.

As much integrity as “The Captain” has, it’s also subject to some glibness. The movie seems at times a little too pleased with itself and its mordant observations on humanity, which reach their apogee in the film’s coda, which lets Hubacher, in full costume as Willi, loose in the Germany of today.

“The Captain,” Robert Schwentke’s harrowing World War II psychodrama, isn’t what you would call enjoyable, exactly. More accurately, it compels our attention with a remorseless, gripping single-mindedness, presenting Naziism as a communicable disease that smothers conscience, paralyzes resistance and extinguishes all shreds of humanity.
