Ripley's movie review

It was interesting to watch Hitler go from an insecure insignificant annoyance to an influential raving lunatic. Ok, he didn't quite make it to lunatic but you could see he was on his way. The various "what if" scenarios that the movie suggested were also interesting. However, despite some fine acting, the movie was slow and I had to force myself to pay attention.
