Woody Allen schafft es so gut wie in jedem seiner Filme Witze und One-Liner mit Bezug auf den Holocaust unterzubringen die eigentlich immer funktionieren. Das finde ich immer wieder extrem faszinierend und extrem lustig, wobei mit natĂŒrlich kontextgemĂ€ĂŸ das Lachen auch das ein oder andere Mal im Hals stecken bleibt.
Alles in allem gebe ich gerne zu: Ich verehre Woody Allen total.
Vorgestern hab ich endlich mal wieder einen Film von ihm gesehen, den ich noch nicht kannte: Hannah und ihre Schwestern
Top, wie immer.

You missed a very dull TV show on Auschwitz. More gruesome film clips, and more puzzled intellectuals declaring their mystification over the systematic murder of millions.

You see the whole culture. Nazis, deodorant salesmen, wrestlers, beauty contests, a talk show. Can you imagine the level of a mind that watches wrestling? But the worst are the fundamentalist preachers. Third grade con men telling the poor suckers that watch them that they speak with Jesus, and to please send in money. Money, money, money!

How the hell do I know why there were Nazis? I don‘t know how the can opener works!

A week ago I bought a rifle, I went to the store – I bought a rifle! I was gonna, you know, if they told me I had a tumor, I was gonna kill myself. The only thing that might-ve stopped me – MIGHT‘VE – is that my parents would be devastated. I would have to shoot them also, first. And then I have an aunt and uncle – you know – it would‘ve been a blood bath.
