Triumph of the Will

This is an important, yet obviously deeply flawed, film in the documentary canon. Watch the opening section for a pungent bit of myth building using actuality footage. Also, skim through the film, or watch it all, for scenes of the famous evening rally speeches. Also, very important as far as formalist issues go in documentary construction.
