actually capra was far more ideological than riefenstahl. "olympia" really is beautiful.

I watched this Riefenstahl doc a few years back and in interviews from her latter years she was saying Goebbels despised her because she wasn't ever really a proper nazi. But in Goebbels dairies he slags the fuck out of everybody - even Hitler at times - but doesn't have bad word to say about her iirc. His entries on her were sort of like: "what an honour it is to have dinner with such a hugely talented and spectacular specimen of Aryan womanhood ... phwoar .. cor blimey she's quite fit as well etc.."
