Moloch by Alexander Sokurov (1999, 108 min.). In an ominous fortress perched high above the clouds, everything seems in order for a reposing 24-hour retreat. It is the spring of 1942, and Eva Braun is the only voice that dares to contradict the Fuhrer. Shot in part at the original fortress at Hitler’s retreat in the Bavarian Alps, Eva is caught up in the complexities of a man incapable of human intimacy, making her as volcanic as her beloved Hitler. In German with English subtitles.
