Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil - Amos Elon, Hannah Arendt We just saw the movie Hannah Arendt, and it is extremely good - possibly the best thing I've seen this year. Margarethe von Trotta's direction and script are excellent, and Barbara Sukowa is terrific in the title role.
