      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...

      The film is so-so, the rhythm is more protracted. The male protagonist, Joss, is definitely a master of psychology, able to play between the Nazis, the rebels, and the Jews who are counting on him to help escape. The main character in the film ended up peacefully in the end: although the Dutch government requested the extradition of the biggest Dutch traitor in 1988, Joss, who fled to Argentina early, had a close relationship with the Verons and became their partner. Intelligence consultant,...

      What I said about Riphagen, it turned out to be a wrong translation. . . Pretends well and is particularly good at exploiting other people's weaknesses, likes to deal with people, exploits their greed, and kills you in return. Or as Comrade Lei Feng said, treating bad people is like sweeping away leaves in the autumn...

      Riphagen reminds me of Cao Cao. He is the kind of hero who is very suitable for troubled times. From beginning to end, he only believes in himself and thinks about himself every minute and every second. It is impossible to simply judge this character with good and evil. It doesn't make sense in the big...

      Don't be naive to think that what history writes must be facts, and that history is always written by the victors! Of course I don't know what's going on with history, but Rip Hagen in the movie is absolutely a genius! Even now. In fact, the director's intention is very obvious, and the most face-to-face is the (class) person at a glance. ....

      No matter which side wins, he has a long-term plan. Almost no one can stop him. When everyone else was betting on which side to win, he only planned for himself. Keep exercising and taking pictures with the good and the bad. Be a bad person in front of a good person, and be a good person in front of a bad person. This is genius. But in the wrong...
