An HBO film on the making of the Wannsee protocols. (Thanks to Mr. Fishman for lending me the tape) Aside from the obvious and important reasons to see this (and it might be an especially good thing to see in the coming month), it's a chance to watch two fine actors, Branagh (Heydrich) and Tucci (Eichman) work hard. They both seem to be miscast, and perhaps that makes the movie better than it would have been with more natural casting.
