ASCENT OF EVIL: THE STORY OF MEIN KAMPF REVIEWED
“Ascent of Evil” asks the question on nobody’s lips…why did Hitler choose to make Mein Kampf? Much like whiny teens of lore, Hitler wanted to go onto LiveJournal to express his dismay and woe. LiveJournal wouldn’t exist for another 80 years, so he wrote a book. It was lame garbage about how he’s cool and the Jews started World War I and most of the world’s troubles. But, now you have a documentary using historical footage and interviews trying to make sense of batshit crazy.
I’d call it a fascinating work, but it wasn’t. There was nothing here that you couldn’t learn on Wikipedia.
