Whenever Hitler spoke publicly there was never a shortage of Nazi iconography. Hitler was a master at utilizing visual and verbal propaganda as a tool of coercion and manipulation over his people. See more »


During the celebration of "V-A Day" in Nazi-ruled New York, a jazzy rendition of the tune "Mack the Knife" is heard. Given that the song was a collaboration between the Jewish composer Kurt Weill and the antifascist poet and playwright Berthold Brecht, and the fact that jazz in general was considered "degenerate music" by the Nazis, it seems unlikely that it would receive much airplay in the Greater German Reich of 1962.

Sets Off Some Fireworks
14 August 2017 | by mbloydSee all my reviews

There's something especially unsettling about a Nazi in a green cardigan. From the beginning, many of the show's most disturbing moments have centered on Obergruppenfuhrer John Smith: even the incongruity between his showy German title and comically ordinary American name reads like a three-word summation of The Man in the High Castle's themes. So it makes sense that the first episode to spotlight the SS officer would be especially effective at encapsulating what makes this alternate world so disquieting when The Man in the High Castle is at its best. The show, at this point, has developed a pattern of using incredibly coincidental chance meetings to drive the narrative. This is on display when Juliana has yet another coincidental crossing of paths with someone. With the end of Three Monkeys, the show has left all of its main characters in intriguing places, all the better to keep us wondering what's next.
