Killing Hitler

Shades of Peter Watkins are heavy in Killing Hitler (2003), Jeremy Loerving's kinetic account of Operation Foxley - the British Secret Service's back-burner plan to figure out a way to knock off Adolph just after Claus von Stauffenberg's Operation Valkyrie went kaploof.

Underrated docu-drama mixes recreations, archival footage, interviews, and more in a clever fashion. Previously released as a Region 2 DVD, Warner Bros. just put out a Region 1 issue, with a bonus doc, Inside the Mind of Adolph Hitler.

Still packin' and bumping into crumpled rubbish on the floor, but coming shortly after the move will be a series of WWII soundtrack reviews, and more horror.
