      More in this world is Riphagen

      Because it's a real event, it's especially realistic. Of course Riphagen is very heinous, but with such a thick stack of photos and so many lives, if he wanted to kill everyone one by one, he would have no way to avoid nightmares, but once it became a system, everyone involved A little bit, or once you know that these people have already been sentenced to death, does it feel much more reassuring to take their lives? In "The Third Reich in Power", it was written that many people...

      There is no good or evil, only profit

      This is something we have never dared to admit, that is, there is no truth in the world that good is rewarded with good, and evil is rewarded with evil. But why such propaganda has continued to this day is because some people need this kind of discourse to brainwash, paralyze, and facilitate their rule. Let those who have been insulted and wounded anesthetize themselves instead of fighting.

      There is an old saying in China, "The golden belt of murder and arson, and the repair of...

      Another banal evil

      Hannah Arendt, speaking about Eichmann's trial, once defined the crimes of their Nazi accomplices as "banal evil". They all looked like ordinary people, no different from our kind, well-behaved, hard-working, breadwinner neighbors. Their only sin seems to be blindly following the orders of their superiors and lacking the ability to self-reflect. The unprecedented political power of the Nazis created a state of invalidation of reflexive judgment in the territories it occupied. In this state,...

      Don't trust the best people

      A scheming state security agent who used desperate Jews, used Germans, used the Communist Party, used his wife, and finally got away with treasure.
      The only righteous man was killed in the end for good intentions.
      Are these people really that stupid? In fact, they are willing to be used, because they can benefit from being used, and there is no one worthy of sympathy except for those Jews who have been defrauded of their wealth and lives. This is a sinful and absurd world. Put away...

      Biopics become hero films

      This film should have been a biopic that honestly reflects history, expanding from the personal experience of a "big traitor" to the distortion of good and evil and human nature in history. The first 30 minutes of the movie did a good job, basically doing all of the above.
             However, since the story of the little hero and male protagonist began to diverge, the focus of the story shifted. The focus of the film jumped from the biography of the great traitor to the feature film "Black...

      Compared with the positive characters who think they are "just", he is a "hero". Those decent guys are really stupid and...

      The first part is a slightly boring biography. The focus is on the latter part. Human nature is vulnerable. For their own benefit, people are fooled by lies again. Including the opposition army survivors, a small group, a communist member, a Jewish Bella Liphagen's wife, and many people are not satisfied with the ending. Because the kindness of good people is used again. When Yang En thinks about Bella's innocence and freedom, when he lets go of Liphagen, he is also pushing himself to a dead...

      Four stars, a brand-new perspective on the story of Nazi war criminals in troubled times. Human nature can be sold everywhere, and the wicked have no evil retribution, so history has fooled the past. There is no direct inclination in the film, but the transition of the shots is very subtle, especially the succession of several key scenes, which can be regarded as an irony and a sigh of...
