"...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...."
"...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...."
"...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..."
"...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..."
"...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..."
"...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..."
"...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)..."
"...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..."
"...While Steel and Concrete arrives as his most elaborate and arresting work to date, Galavis, 32, has been performing in Austin since age 16. He began in teen punk combo Quin & the Eskimos and graduated into post-punk outfits the Dead Space and now Nazi Gold..."
"..."Don't do it. Peaceful protest is better," the charismatic percussionist – known for his work with Swans, Shearwater, Adam Torres, and (coincidently) Nazi Gold – advised, then offered three tips: hold your wrist straight, keep your elbow loose, and punch through the face..."
"...AC: Many people still know you from the Dead Space and Nazi Gold. Are you now fully focused on being a solo artist?..."

"...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)..."
"...15, Bungalow, 1am Launched by principals Jason Reece and Conrad Keely in mid-Nineties Austin, AYWKUBTTOD's incendiary post-punk destruction evolved into cinematic art rock on 2014's IX.
