Downfall + Good Night and Good Luck

Downfall + Good Night and Good Luck
Available on iTunes
Double Feature | Year 1 (2009)

Introducing Hitler. Building anticipation. This is still Double Feature, so let’s compare Downfall to Cloverfield! WWII as a b story. Uncanny Iraq parallels. Socialism. Obeying the leader. Brief moments of violence. Absence of score and foreign films. A different perspective. Why you should love George Clooney more than you already do. Challenging authority. Archive footage. Stories don’t always have two equal sides, goddamnit! New media. What happened to the news? The failures of old media. The Danish cartoons. Blashpemy. Actually letting the terrorists win. You’re not neutral, you’re a failure. The Chicago Zombie March. The titular line.
