    THIS WAS OUTSTANDING. From 2005--and nominated for an Academy Award. Yes, I'm WAAAY behind, but glad I finally came across it.

    A firsthand account of the last 12 days before the fall of Berlin and the Nazi's, as told by combined memoirs of Hitler's surviving secretary, officers, and others in his bunker during those final days. This pre-dated Valkyrie by a few years, and though the films told the story from two very different sides, Downfall as a movie was vastly superior in every way imaginable. German language (as Valkyrie should've been), and Bruno Ganz was brilliant as Hitler. It's also clear that Valkyrie borrowed much from it in terms of sets, costumes, and even actors. It was long (the extended cut sent by Netflix), compelling, chilling, and brutal as one would imagine. But very highly recommended as pure cinema, and a must-see for anyone with interest in this period.

    I haven't watched Downfall yet either and I AM awesome.
    Only by living absurdly is it possible to break out of this infinite absurdity.

    IMO, downfall is the best war film out there. The guythat played Hitler apparently had him to a tee and it was nice to finally get a balnced view of those last days.

    A fan of this era in music history, I enjoyed this odd mockumentary of Factory Records and the Manchester scene of the late 70's-early 80's. Steve Coogan was SO EXCELLENT as Tony Wilson. But..... that birdface mother****er that played Ian Curtis bugged the hell outta me SO FRIGGIN BAD, he almost ruined it. And as cold as it sounds, I was hugely relieved that Ian's suicide came barely half way through so I didn't have to keep looking away from the screen when he came on. Sorry, Ian, but whoever cast the film did you a HUGE injustice. The guy from Control was 10,000X better.

    As usual.... don't know what took me so long to see this.
