Next Up: The Reading of the Will


When Charles Bronson died, I fired a shot or two at the critics who'd unfairly tagged Death Wish as "fascist." Now a genuinely fascist filmmaker has followed him to the grave: Leni Riefenstahl, who spent the last 58 years claiming to be apolitical at heart but before then churned out the Nazis' most famous propaganda pictures. I can't say I'm an admirer of her work, but I did enjoy Ray Müller's documentary about her "wonderful, horrible" life.
