Woman in Gold
Helen Mirren plays an aging Jew who wants to win back a painting looted from her family by the Nazis
Film Review  April 10, 2015, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Take a complex legal issue like the provenance of an art object, then throw in Helen Mirren and the Nazis as the hero and villains, and you have the dull and simplified tale of Woman in Gold...."

Nazi Schmatzi: 'Iron Sky' Ist die Bombe
SXSW Film 'Iron Sky' reviewed
DAILY SXSW  March 13, 2012, by Marc Savlov
"...Any film that stars Udo Kier as a Nazi is comedy gold in our book and Iron Sky, from Finnish director Timo Vuorensola, is a crackerjack bit of Aryan tomfoolery, this despite the fact that the film is essentially a one-note gag strung out to feature length...."

Armor of God II: Operation Condor
A wisecracking adventurer finds himself confronted by spear-wielding savages as he attempts to make off with tribal treasures. Thugs, Nazis, and mufti-clad killers confront him at every hair-raising turn as...
Film Review  July 2, 1993, by Marc Savlov
"...Instead, we have a thoroughly entertaining Raiders rip-off/homage by Hong Kong action genius Jackie Chan. Chan borrows heavily from the Spielberg/Lucas back catalogue to great effect in this tale of buried Nazi gold and international camaraderie..."

Operation Condor
Jackie Chan as Indiana Jones, sans bullwhip. This 1991 Chan opus (Armour of God II: Operation Condor), repackaged with a new score, better dubbing (Chan does Chan, natch), and some...
Film Review  July 25, 1997, by Marc Savlov
"...The difference between Woo (this summer's Face/Off) and Chan, of course, resides in the body count -- Woo: 500 to Chan: 5, usually. Operation Condor's plot has something to do with superagent “Jackie Condor” (Chan) being sent to the Sahara to recover a fortune in stolen Nazi gold..."

Screens Story  March 10, 2016, by Richard Whittaker
"...She said, "I was having dinner with my parents' friends, and they just happened to bring this case up. They said, 'Wasn't that crazy?' What are you talking about? They said, 'They found hundreds of millions in Nazi gold in the bank in Denison.' I thought, This is crazy..."

The Architecture of Doom
Using archival footage, still photography, and clips from propaganda films, the impeccably researched documentary The Architecture of Doom formulates a convincing thesis about Hitler and his legacy, the Holocaust --...
Film Review  January 24, 1992, by Steve Davis
"...What's dumbfounding in this day and age is the prospect of a “civilized” nation of people acquiescing to the concept of murder as a hygienic measure. (Then again, the American public's gung-ho patriotism in response to the carnage of Operation Desert Storm last year indicates that there's no monopoly on blind chauvinism.) Aside from its central thesis, this documentary is a gold mine of fascinating information about the Third Reich, especially in detailing the roots of Naziism in the German arts and the important role the arts played in the new Germany..."

Perceptive film about Jesse Owens going to the 1936 Berlin Olympics
Film Review  February 19, 2016, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Eighty years after winning four gold medals in track and field at the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin, Jesse Owens’ accomplishments have now been immortalized on film. Wisely, the screenplay (written by Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse) doesn’t attempt to be an all-encompassing biopic but rather focuses on the years 1934-36, when Owens (played by Stephan James) developed from a talented novice into a world champion, due in large measure to his admission to Ohio State University and the training he received from his coach Larry Snyder (Sudeikis)..."

A Film Unfinished
This fascinating documentary uses recently uncovered footage to piece together and decipher the ulterior meaning of a Nazi propaganda film recorded in the Warsaw Ghetto in 1943.
Film Review  December 3, 2010, by Marc Savlov
"...His responses, taken from the transcript of the interrogation, are vague and troubling. According to Wist – whose younger self, at one point, is glimpsed as he accidentally steps into frame in the original footage – he was merely one camera operator among others, given instructions on what and who to film by a mysterious figure known only as "Gold Pheasant." This unknown person was presumably an officer and probably acting on direct orders from Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi minister of propaganda, but beyond (and including) that nothing is certain..."

That Fighting Spirit
Raging Boll
Screens Story  October 22, 2010, by Marc Savlov
"...The controversial filmmaker occasionally referred to as the worst director since Ed Wood recently released a 48-second online teaser trailer for his next self-funded feature – Auschwitz – in a bid to, as the director has roguishly stated online, do for the infamous Nazi death factory what Mel Gibson did for Jesus with The Passion of the Christ. But where Gibson was a fervent Christian (and apparent anti-Semite), Boll is a non-Jewish, German filmmaker of dubious talent who has been accused, rightly or wrongly, of using "Nazi gold" to fund his frequent forays into ill-advised video game adaptations (House of the Dead, Alone in the Dark, BloodRayne)..."
