  • Naomi Wolf Compares 'Zero Dark Thirty' Filmmaker to Nazi Propagandist Leni Riefenstahl

    Big Hollywood ^ | 6 Jan 2013, 7:35
    The Left's battle against "Zero Dark Thirty" continues, but this time the Oscar-winning director of the film is being called far worse than an apologist for "torture." A trio of senators previously critiqued the minds behind the movie, detailing the hunt for Osama bin Laden, for daring to suggested enhanced interrogation tactics helped nab the terrorist leader. Now, progressive critic Naomi Wolf is comparing Bigelow to the Nazis' premier propagandist. In a time of darkness in America, you are being feted by Hollywood, and hailed by major media. But to me, the path your career has now taken reminds of...

    Hot Air Greenberg ^ | August 17, 2012 | LIBBY STERNBERG is out with a four-minute video that’s been showing up on the interwebz, most notably Facebook, with this enticing title: “This video MIGHT stop Romney from becoming president.” In the video, two GenXers reveal to you with cheerful sincerity the GOP’s three-pronged strategy to get Mitt Romney elected president, and, as you can well imagine, it’s all part of a dire “racist” plot funded by the Koch Brothers. I exaggerate….but nowhere near as much as the video does.If you can stand to watch it, it’s below, but here’s a summary of their major “prongs:”Prong 1:The GOP has been sabotaging...

    Robert von Dassanowsky, the director of Film Studies at the University of Colorado, acutely noticed back in 2001 that James Cameron's epic movie Titanic is based on the German mountain films that Riefenstahl starred in. Although largely ignoring Riefenstahl's compromised relationship with the Nazis, von Dassanowsky makes a compelling case that Cameron's Titanic is a German mountain film set upon the sea ice of the North Atlantic. Von Dassanowsky even went so far to strongly suggest that the heroine in the Titanic, Rose, is actually based on Riefenstahl's personal character. He then intimates that Cameron may have indeed directed the...

    One of the most embarrassing environmental facts of the 1930s was that between 60-70% of the German greens were Nazi Party members, compared to only 10% of the population at large. In fact, German greens even outperformed medical doctors and teachers, with Nazi foresters and veterinarians leading the charge. Somehow, the so-called independent German wandervogels (German word for ‘wandering free spirits') found themselves at the footstool of Der Fuhrer. Their wandervogel attitudes about civilization and the wild forestlands found a political niche in the isolationist biology of the Nazi Party. Furthermore, their strong beliefs in holism found a political voice...

    This fall, watch for David Axelrod, Obama's campaign manager, to choreograph at least two post-convention mass events at least slightly reminiscent of the stagecraft of Leni Riefenstahl in 1934 Germany. Ms. Riefenstahl first heard her idol at a 1932 rally. She was enthralled by his public speaking ability and became a devotee, dedicating her genius to making films that deified The Leader. Her 1934 work entitled "Triumph of the Will," documenting a mass rally in Nuremberg, remains a movie classic with its pioneering dramatic camera work and superbly suggestive imagery. Riefenstahl, a former dancer, put a camera on a semi-circular...

    Many thanks to film critic Michael Medved for his review of Hollywood's latest piece of social propaganda, "Brokeback Mountain." Medved has spared 98 percent of American males what he calls "the eww! factor" by warning us of its graphic scenes of homosexuality. This "love story" is set in 1963 between two young, married sheepherders who seek regular fulfillment of their lust for each other by engaging in homosexual adultery while their unsuspecting wives sit home believing they are off together on "hunting trips." Medved compares the film, which is skillfully directed by Ang Lee ("Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon") to "Triumph...

    Gazeta Wyborcza reviewer Jacek Szczerba called the film a "foul pamphlet". He said it was too biased to be called a documentary and was similar to work by Nazi propaganda director Leni Riefenstahl. But politicians opposed to Poland's involvement in the US-led occupation of Iraq have urged people to see the film. "In criticising Moore, I have to admit that he has certain abilities - Leni Riefenstahl had them too," Mr Szczerba said in his review. "Michael Moore will not convince Poles with his film," the Rzeczpospolita newspaper said in its review. 'A lot of truth' "People are very sensitive...

    Feeling oh-pressed? Posted: March 18, 20041:00 a.m. Eastern © 2004 Isn't it odd how often it's the little things that offer the greatest insights? On March 8, Joseph Farah's column "Hollywood honors a Nazi," lamented that the Academy Awards had honored Leni Riefenstahl, who died last year at the age of 101. Academy officials did so without fanfare and without apology. Ms. Riefenstahl was an immensely talented woman. She was also Hitler's filmmaker. Her greatest film was "Triumph des Willens" (Triumph of the Will), which showcased the sixth Reich Party Congress in Nuremberg in 1934. Using the backdrop of Albert Speer's...

    Oscar Honors a Nazi March 1, 2004 Hitler’s favorite propagandist has finally been rehabilitated. At Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony, Hollywood gave Leni Riefenstahl its kosher seal of approval. As it does every year, the Oscars ceremony paid homage and tribute to all of the great actors, directors, composers, and other showbiz types who passed on in the previous year. But along with recently deceased legends like Bob Hope, Gregory Peck, Donald O’Connor, Robert Stack, Buddy Hackett -- and even John Ritter, Ms. Riefenstahl was so honored. Incredibly, the Hollywood audience in attendance gave loud applause in response to the televised...

A full week after the Academy Awards show that honored entertainment industry figures who died in 2003, including Adolf Hitler's filmmaker-propagandist Leni Riefenstahl, no one has expressed regrets or remorse to the American people or to the world's Jews. Incredible. Especially so since so many in Hollywood have spent the last eight months obsessing over non-existent anti-Semitism in this year's...

    Last fall, one of the world's most talented movie directors died at the age of 101. According to obituaries, she was "daringly innovative" and a "genius." Not only that, but she was one of the first women to become famous as a director. But there were no misty-eyed television tributes to this director and no posthumous film festivals organized to celebrate her career. And it's a safe guess that no one at this year's Academy Awards will share fond memories of the woman whom some have called "the devil's director." In her long life, Leni Riefenstahl never lived down her...

    Leni Riefenstahl, the German filmmaker whose daringly innovative documentaries about a Nazi rally in Nuremberg in 1934 and the Berlin Olympics of 1936 earned her both acclaim as a cinematic genius and contempt as a propagandist for Hitler, died Monday night at her home in Pöcking, south of Munich. She was 101. After the defeat of Germany in 1945, she was pronounced a Nazi sympathizer by the Allies and never again found work as a movie director. But her revolutionary film techniques deeply influenced later generations of documentary makers and television commercial makers, keeping alive the debate over whether her...
