Downfall (2004)

Director: Oliver Hirschbiegel
Stars: Bruno Ganz, Alexandra Maria Lara, Ulrich Matthes

Bruno Ganz gives an unforgettable performance as Hitler during his last days in this well orchestrated chamber piece. The entry point into the madness is a 22-year-old secretary employed in Hitler's bunker right as things hit the fan.

Worth it if for nothing else than to see the original scene that spawned a hundred Internet memes, and better understand the brilliance of whoever made the first iteration.
