How this all played out in terms of the Austrian election will surprise no one, but seeing how much the situation came to prefigure the contemporary house of mirrors in Europe as well as America still comes as something of a shock.
The film may end in 1986, but the darkness it reveals still looms.
Several journalists perform keen off-the-cuff political analyses; several Austrian politicians bravely defy local orthodoxies; and free, frank hearings in the United States Congress add a painful element of nostalgia.
A timely and engagingly personal reminder of recent European history.
If it sounds like a dry history lesson, think again.
The Waldheim Waltz functions as both an invaluable look at a protest movement fighting against a right-wing political insurgency, and also a call to action, creating a sense of righteous fury and a desire to prevent another Waldheim affair.
[It] speaks even more directly to our current situation...
A powerful film about the importance of remembering our history and holding politicians to account for their actions.
Of riveting contemporary political relevance...effectively raises disquieting questions about a country's memories and moral responsibility as right-wing parties again rise.
The Waldman Waltz gradually builds outrage at the subterranean persistence of fascism in postwar politics.
Yet another scuzz gets away with murder, elevated to the highest office in the United Nations and in Austria.
The Waldheim Waltz is, obviously, brutally relevant not only for its native Austria...but also for all world leaders who have the ghastly ability to somehow survive the fiercest and most upright scrutiny.
