Not really much of a film, but a rather powerful statement on the German people. It probably could have been achieved in 10 minutes and would be more powerful at that length.If you find it offputting at first, stick with it to get the intended effect.
Ultimately been won over despite the claps and the genre it's set in. Clearly we have a Blair Witch Project in Hitler's bunker here. Maybe history might return one day to this for its found-footage experiment. And to finally mention the hilarious joke 'Papa' next to the blow-job (who didn't laugh ?)
I went to Schlingensief's show at PS1 because these films are so decadently compelling. While the other work is more performance art-like, the films conjure for me Fassbinder, Herzog, George Kuchar, early Warhol, and even Paul McCarthy videos. The Hitler films attempt to degrade the difficult historical memory of Germany having spawned a monster. Would we could toss to Schlingensief Cheney or Kissinger as subjects.
