We finally got around to watching Downfall, the movie which is the source of the "Hitler is angry about _____" scene so often parodied on the internet.
It's an all right movie, with great action sequences in the outdoors shots of Berlin being bombed, and most of the scenes inside the bunker have a very claustrophobic feeling to them. But for the most part, it failed to capture my attention.
The worst part of the movie is Ganz, who doesn't feel like Hitler in the least. Poking around online, it looks like everyone lauded his performance as the broken-down shell of a man at the end of his life, but it just felt wrong. But this problem does not seem unique to this film. Surprisingly, I can't recall ANY actor who has played Hitler well. It must be the taboo nature of the character (or possibly a curse from Hitler's ghost?). I would expect the role would be a wonderful challenge for any actor worth his salt, but I suspect the taboo nature of doing a good job portraying Hitler has made anyone capable of playing him well shy away from the role.
