Stehlik von facets: I think it’s going after all the duplicator traumas,
it is going pretty well…an interesting thing is that on amazon.com, OH
is higher-rated by consumers than Berlin Alexanderplatz, which was also released
this autumn. Here are 2 audience reviews from the amazon website:

Wie sich das bei und um Amazon ua.

a Film from Germany is on another scale from anything one has seen on film.
It is work that demands a special kind of attention and partisanship; and invites
being reflected upon, reseen. ... Syberberg's film belongs in the category
of noble masterpieces which ask for fealty and can compel it. After seeing
Hitler, a Film from Germany, there is Syberberg's film - and then there are
the other films one admires. (Not too many these days, alas.)"
And even fewer these days. But it's unlikely that Hitler could win the devotion
today that it received on its release. You had to be there —in the theater,
submitting to an all-day immersion in Syberbergonomics. That way, Hitler could
command you to follow its pace, its labyrinthine arguments and artistic strategies.
Watching it on a TV screen, able to hit the Fast Forward or Stop button as
your attention wanes, you are the director, the Fuehrer. Still, the cumulative
experience —less than half the length of its TV-movie contemporary, Fassbinder's
Berlin Alexanderplatz —is enthralling enough to invest in. Since the
film is also viewable atSubterreanean Cinema, you're welcome to look at chunks
there. If you're tantalized, then be a good consumer and buy the Facets video.
