Night Will Fall review

A shocking WW2 doc is brought to attention

This is a film about a film; one that proved so hot to handle during the Cold War that it was banished to the archives of the Imperial War Museum, where it has lain unfinished for 70 years. The footage – discoveries made by the Allies in the liberated Nazi camps during 1945 – is graphic, terrible, unforgettable.

And though you will have seen some of these images before (the bodies; the ovens; the pits), you will not have seen them to such a degree. This shocking if fascinating documentary (both Alfred Hitchcock and Billy Wilder have parts to play) explores why.
