Goebbel's experiment

The Nazi propaganda mastermind behind Hitler speaks in first person as actor Kenneth Branagh reads pages of the diary kept by the chief of propaganda, Joseph Goebbels, revealing the man's most inner thoughts. Joseph Goebbels (1897-1945) was a symbol of Germany's Nazi regime and a twentieth-century icon of maniacal cruelty. His name has been synonymous with cynical, unscrupulous, and at times successful, propaganda. The life of Joseph Goebbels is far more complicated and disturbing than labels like "genius of spin" or "Reich Liar-General" would suggest. The chronicle shows how Goebbels continually "restaged" and reinvented himself -- from his early days as a radical "popular socialist" to his tragic end. The film lets Goebbels speak for himself through the diaries he kept without interruption from 1924 to 1945, as never before seen historical footage from German archives traces the life of the second most powerful man of the Third Reich, detailing his initial attraction to the Nazi party and his adoration of Hitler. The result is a fascinating psycho-gram of a man who careened extravagantly between self-pity, wild extermination fantasies, and political excesses.

  • "Take a glimpse at the toxic mind of Joesph Goebbels, Hitler's henchman who was an enigmatic genius. The filmmakers allow Joesph to speak for himself (in the voice of Kenneth Branagh) via the extensive diaries that he kept from 1924-1945."
  • "The Goebbels experiment lets the Nazi propaganda mastermind behind Hitler talk directly to you as actor Kenneth Branagh reads pages of the diary he kept without interruption from 1924 to 1945."
  • "Joseph Goebbels (1897-1945) hat den NS-Staat als Markenzeichen überlebt. Sein Name steht noch heute weltweit für hemmungslose, zynische und zumindest zeitweise erfolgreiche Propaganda. In regelmässigen Abständen kommt es zu Goebbels-Vergleichen, mit denen aktive Politiker als besonders üble Hetzer und Polemiker gebrandmarkt werden sollen. Wie kaum ein anderer Politiker und Agitator vor ihm war er ausserdem eine filmische und theatralische Existenz. Goebbels befasste sich voller Hingabe und Arbeitswut mit dem gesamten Spektrum der öffentlichen Kommunikation ? und scheiterte dennoch politisch und moralisch auf ganzer Linie. (Quelle: Umschlag)."
