The Architecture of Doom

1989 / 123min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: PETER COHEN

Cohen’s justly celebrated documentary uses a treasure trove of exhumed footage to investigate the aesthetic of the Third Reich as expressed through the visual arts, popular culture and, perhaps most importantly, architecture. Rather than positing Nazism as a political ideology alone, the rigorous, remarkable The Architecture of Doom examines Hitler’s attempt to build monuments to a thousand year Reich, conceived with an eye to how they would appear as ruins.
