"The Architecture of Doom." 

This documentary focuses on the obsession Adolf Hitler had with “pure” and aesthetically acceptable art and how he applied these notions while running the Third Reich, including sponsoring exhibitions of so-called “degenerate art” that were intended to depict modernist painting and sculpture as expressions of mental illness and general depravity. The film chronicles Hitler as he scavenges classical art from across Europe and, as an amateur architect, designs buildings that express his vision of a Nordic empire with a Nazi aesthetic. Directed by Peter Cohen.
