I'm really disappointed with this particular film. I was really hoping to learn more about the Nazi eugenics program and the like, but it turned out to be a very general documentary that went into little detail. A very superficial film that doesn't bless you with any more knowledge than a ten minute google search. Not to mention the awkward long pauses filled only with a blank screen and creepy music.
