Downfall (Blu-ray)

Bruno Ganz is rivetting as the mad dictator during his final days in the Berlin Bunker. But director Hirschbiegel understands that evil does not exist in a vacuum and that part of what makes Hitler and Nazi Germany so unfathomable is that the state was kept running by essentially normal people. Virtually a taboo subject since the war, this is the first German production about their most notorious son.
