Super interesting form combining documentary and recreation. Great choices for actors who look similar to their real-life counterparts; they all give great performances. All of the technical elements are very well done, and the story is compelling, but it was just too slow for my taste. I think it would benefit from being cut down to 90 minutes. Worthwhile watch.
Out of Kubrick’s older movies, this was the one I was most excited for... Unfortunately, I found it to be very boring with dialogue I barely understood and hardly funny (the one thing I actually thought was funny was the “Führer joke” towards the end). The only reason I’m not rating it lower is because the cinematography was solid (I’ve definitely gained a further appreciation of black and white films by watching these movies), and I can understand how it must’ve been revolutionary/impactful/polarizing when it came out.
