Adolf Hitler: The Artist

Last night I watched a very interesting little cable TV short film (25 minutes long) called ‘Adolf Hitler: The Artist,’ It is being featured on the various Showtime channels and The Movie Channel (TMC) next week. It is loosely based on the book, The Young Hitler I Knew, by August Kubizek who was Hitler’s best friend when he was in Vienna trying to become an art student at the Academy. It is a perfect companion piece to the outstanding documentary, The Rape of Europa, and the feature films The Monuments Men and Woman in Gold. It has the arrogant boorish young artist Hitler commenting on the Vienna Secession, Van Googh, Klimt, Freud, and more in turn of the century Vienna. I have had the Kubizek book for a long time but have never taken the time to read it. I will now over the Summer.
