Zone of Interest - 4 Stars - February 2, 2024 - STREAMING - MAX

The Zone of Interest goes well beyond the usual horror of the Holocaust.  This film centers on the family of Auschwitz commandant Rudolf Hoss.  Within the walls of their Villa, Hoss' wife Hedwig oversees a beautiful home and garden.  Beyond the walls, hundreds go to their death.  The contrast between the two worlds makes a powerful statement on war, ambition, and inhumanity.  I found The Zone of Interest one of the most unforgettable films in years.
