    The TV movie “Conspiracy” (featuring Stanley Tucci and Kenneth Branagh, among others) really hit me when i saw it – putting a relatively human face on the conference where the Nazi brass rolled out the “Final Solution.”

    Some have reservations. Others are repulsed. Others are cartoonishly evil (Ian MacNiece, of course – Baron Harkonnen himself!). But the underlying premise of The Jewish People Need To Be Removed is never in question, the only question is coldly logical: How should it be done?

      I should have said: It’s available on Amazon Prime (and i think HBO Now). It has some great monologues by great actors – i recall Colin Firth giving it his all in one speech in particular. And, speak of the devil: Tucci plays Eichmann.

    Obviously in the Sopranos universe Lorraine Bracco’s character in Goodfellas would be played by Debra Winger.

    Or Annette Bening.

    I hate to be that guy but i’ve gotta say that elem klimov’s “come and see” from 85 is a notable omission from the movies listed in this episode. I hope that David and Tyler discuss that movie one day as its extremely powerful. it’s like the ravenous of ww2/holocaust movies.
