    I saw Hitler: A film from Germany when it first played in the early 80s. It was a marathon showing at Avery Fisher Hall in NYC and I was overwhelmed. I have the book of the script with an intro by Susan Sonntag. I also have a quasi-bootleg copy that I got on Ebay years ago, but have never watched. As an avid Wagnerian, and having lived in Bavaria for a year I felt like the film was made for me. I loved the Parsifal he did even more.

    What was the occasion for your watching it?

      I watched it because I’m going to do a “New German Cinema” primer on this blog. I saw the official DVD release that Facets put out a few years back. Image quality was so-so. I wish I could’ve seen it in a theater. I also just watched films by Werner Schroeter and Helma Sanders-Brahms for the first time. The Seventies was a heroic age for German cinema.
