The Goebbels Experiment: The Nazi propaganda mastermind behind Hitler speaks in first person as actor Kenneth Branagh reads pages of the diary kept by the chief of propaganda, Joseph Goebbels, revealing the man's most inner thoughts. Joseph Goebbels (1897-1945) was a symbol of Germany's Nazi regime and a twentieth-century icon of maniacal cruelty. His name has been synonymous with cynical, unscrupulous, and at times successful, propaganda. The life of Joseph Goebbels is far more complicated and disturbing than labels like "genius of spin" or "Reich Liar-General" would suggest. The chronicle shows how Goebbels continually "restaged" and reinvented himself -- from his early days as a radical "popular socialist" to his tragic end. The film lets Goebbels speak for himself through the diaries he kept without interruption from 1924 to 1945, as never before seen historical footage from German archives traces the life of the second most powerful man of the Third Reich, detailing his initial attraction to the Nazi party and his adoration of Hitler. The result is a fascinating psycho-gram of a man who careened extravagantly between self-pity, wild extermination fantasies, and political excesses.

Unremarkable, but well worth one time watch. Didn't really add much to my understanding of G's ideas or the inner man. Liked the clips of German propaganda epics commissioned by Goebbels, like 'Uncle Krueger' and 'Kolberg' (which I wouldn't mind seeing in full). G. is generally withering about British WW2 propaganda, but it's interesting that he greatly admired Churchill's speeches as propaganda, esp. 'blood, tears, toil and sweat', which he considered adopting! Let's face it, it would have been more pertinent to Germany than Britain.

Good presentation narrated by Sir Kenneth Branagh. Interesting archival material on the propaganda minister Goebbels. Worth the watch. 4/5
