Downfall ★★★★½

"You must be on stage when the curtain falls."

Bruno Ganz performance as Adolf Hitler is one of the best acting I've seen in awhile. By stripping away the power and menace that we are so use to seeing Hitler's image, and instead we see a sickly paranoid man - basically a human being and not just an evil maniac, which makes it even scarier.

He was brilliant and unique. A legend in cinema that will be forever missed.
