    You're right! The plot thickens!...

    "Glenn Close was famously called in to dub the role of Jane in "Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan" after Andie Macdowell's southern twang was judged to be too distracting." (G.Close is from CT)

    Thank you for bringing that up.

    Look Who's Back

    I don't laugh out loud at movies. This is a rare exception. I think I may have even done a spit-take.

    The premise is pretty straightforward. Hitler wakes up in modern day Germany, is discovered by a television journalist/filmmaker (who thinks it's a gag), and becomes a viral video sensation.

    The neat trick is that while taking Hitler around the country, a lot of the people he interacted with were real, and were supportive. Imagine Sacha Baron Cohen sending out someone dressed as Hitler and filming the genuine reactions of real people. There's some brilliant comedy in these scenes, with "Hitler" being deadpan serious, and erstwhile fans of this new internet sensation unwittingly playing along.

    The film (as you might expect) loses a bit of luster when it's Hitler interacting with actors in staged situations such as at the TV network where he lands a job, but that's a minor nit-pick. It does get a bit preachy near the end, but hey...if Germany can't make a satirical movie about Hitler...

    Anyway, bottom line is the movie is funny as hell. 7/10
