Top 10 Dictator Movies

4 of 11

8. DOWNFALL

This 2004 German film going into Hitler’s bunker at the close of World War II was well received, and WINGS OF DESIRE’s Bruno Ganz was lauded for his portrayal of Adolf. No one expected, however, that the pivotal scene in which he realizes the war is lost would become such rich source material for countless Youtube spoofs. As Hitler rages at his generals, bored people all over the internet have changed the subtitles of his German tirade to reflect fury at any number of injustices, from the large (the housing bubble crisis of 2008) to the very small (Dobby’s death in the end of HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS, PART I).
