Leni Riefenstahl German filmmaker (1902 2003). She became infamous after directing propaganda films for the Nazis, like "Olympia" and "Triumph of the Will". She always denied that she was anything more than a cameraperson for the Nazi documentaries, but she is still believed to have been a major player in the Nazi propaganda machine. ugg boots for sale Since the end of World War II, she directed only one film "Tiefland", a drama released in 1954. Her best known films were "Olympia" and "Triumph of the Will". Both of them are artfully and beautifully photographed. "Olympia", a documentary on the Berlin Olympics, spotlights Jesse Owens triumphs over the German athletes with enough juxtaposition of Owens and Hitler to make it clear what a tremendous slap in the face this was to Hitler s fantasies of Aryan superiority. This factory outlet ugg boots film is educational and it can even be fun for many people to watch. "Triumph of the Will", however, is a vile little Valentine to Adolf Hitler, made even more disgusting by the skill and passion in which the film is put together. It is likely to induce an urge to wash oneself. Repeatedly. With a wire brush. I ll excuse a lot of things for the sake of art. But though Riefenstahl s films are undeniably art, they were still art in the service of Hitler and the Nazis, and I have an awful lot of trouble excusing that. If there s any justice, she will be forgotten sooner, rather than later. Bertha Helene Amalia "Leni" Riefenstahl (1902 2003) was a multi talented German woman most famous for directing "Triumph of the Will" Hitler s greatest propaganda film. In her own words, she led "five lives" dancer, actress, director, photographer, and deep sea diver. Renowned for her great beauty, Riefenstahl was first an accomplished ballet dancer in the 1920s and then when a knee injury ended that career she became a silent film star. In the 1930s while in her early 30s she turned to directing and won great acclaim for her directing genius on two documentaries the aforementioned "Triumph of the Will," which recorded a 1934 Nazi Party Rally at Nuremberg, and "Olympia," which documented the 1936 Olympic Games. She used many revolutionary techniques that had not been seen before, such as interesting camera angles, zoom lenses, and slow motion. For "Olympia" she put cameramen on roller skates, in hot air baloons, in row boats and on miniature rail cars to capture athletes in action from previously undreamt of camera angles. After the war Riefenstahl was a war prisoner for seven years because of her ties to the Nazis and then tried to go to Hollywood, but directors and producers who had praised her work back in the 1930s before they knew how evil Hitler was now totally shunned her. After several years of frustrating failures to land directing jobs, Riefenstahl finally took up a new career as a still photographer, documenting the Nuba tribes of the Sudan. It was a self imposed exile of sorts, among people who cared nothing for her past. Then in the 1970s, at the age of 72, she started her fifth "life" as a deep sea diver and underwater photographer. This too could be seen as an escape Riefenstahl was fond of describing the "peace" of the deep ocean. Riefenstahl lived to see her 101st year, dying of complications related to cancer on September 8, 2003. She retained her vibrant and active lifestyle until the very end, still diving and puting on exhibitions of her photographs at art museums after her 100th birthday. But even though over 50 years had passed since the demise of Hitler, Riefenstahl s association with Hitler continued to plague her image into the 21st century. Although she condemned Hitler s actions and claimed she had no knowledge of his genocidal policies until after the war, Riefenstahl never expressed remorse regarding her own role in the rise of his regime, and always unashamedly regarded "Triumph of the Will" as her finest achievement. From Riefenstahl s point of view, she was nothing more than a glorified camerawoman. Of her relationship with Hitler she claimed, "Altogether I only worked with him for six days, as that is how long the party congress lasted." Yet rumors lingered that she had a love affair with Hitler and possibly witnessed concentration camp inmates or massacres rumors she denied and that have never been proven beyond doubt. Well into the 1990s there were still protests at her exhibits, and in 1997, for example, she had to be secretly spirited into Los Angeles to receive a lifetime achievement awar from the Cinecon club of private film buffs amidst a furious outcry from Holocaust uk ugg boots survivor groups. While Riefenstahl was certainly punished heavily for her involvement with one of the great villians of history, it is also hard to feel too sorry for her, knowing that much of her suffering could have been avoided with even a small expression of remorse. In a life that straddled one of the most turbulent centuries in human history, Riefenstahl was the archtypal genius supremely talented and driven, but also incredibly vainglorious and detached from the reality of her world, at times to an almost delusional extent. Between half a century of vehement denials by Riefenstahl and the wild accusations of her detractors, it becomes very difficult to separate fact from fiction. It seems that the real truth of Riefenstahl s relationship with Hitler has gone with her to her grave.

Leo s Italian Grill US Went with some friends last Saturday night for their birthday. The food was terrible. The dishes were dirty (sent back 3 times) and the bread was as hard as rocks. The salads were from bags and not fresh but totally wilted. To make things worse we had a Restaurant dot com gift certificate from last Christmas. After eating dinner we tried to use the certificate to pay part of the birthday dinner. The owner informed us after complaining to the waiter that they weren t accepting coupons already clearance ugg boots paid for any longer and he refused to make things right. I couldn t believe he tried to drag us into his dispute with Restaurants dot com. We ve been going to Leo s for years from when he had a small place in Oldsmar to when he had a place on Alternate 19 and then his new place on US Hwy 19 in Palm Harbor. He sold the 1st two places I mentioned. This is really a nice place. Leo bought this place and put a lot of money into this place and really fixed this place up nicely. He has a nice banquet hall in there too if anyone in interest in doing a private event. We order an extra large Mushroom Pizza once a week at Leo s and it s GREAT! They use fresh Mushroom, good sauce and good cheese and the crust is cooked perfectly. We ve had the wings a few times too and they are pretty good. All of the service staff member are GREAT friendly and they all come up to greet us when they get a moment. We ve known them for a little bit. Leo couldn t of asked for a better staff. I live in Tampa so I try to come up to Leo s at least 3 times a month. I was there on a Friday night and never seen this new girl and I was dancing or standing and she was being so rude with her new york attitude. The customers are suppose to get friendly service and never be disrespected. Food was great like always and I love going there for the food. The best italian food. I never had any problems before until this new waitress was there. I m going to try it one more time but if shes there and disrespects or is rude again, never will see me there again. I have no idea why you people think the food is so bad. I am from NY and this is the only place that the pizza comes close to home. I said close. My husband and I have tried almost everything on the menu. We went to Leo s in Dunedin. We live 5 minutes away from the Leo s in Palm Harbor. Maybe you guys just caught them on an off day. I have been to Leo s more times than I can count. I have NEVER had a bad meal. Nick the bartender is the best! We both love the food there. Yes, it does get crowded some nights, Those are the nights we don t go in. I guess you can t please everyone. I have always been happy when I left Leo s. I could say a lot more about the rude comments. I was told to "keep it clean" If you don t have anything nice to say don t say anything at all. Maybe you left your manners as well ugg outlet boots as your taste buds from wherever you are. Go back to putting ketchup on your noodles. I LOVE LEO S My wife and I always see a full Leo s parking lot. Hungry and wanting to see what the rave was about, we called in a pick up order and were excited to dig in. The prices seemed a bit high, but quality food would warrant those prices, so we expected quality. Sadly, the obvious reason for our disappointment can be narrowed down to one fact: They use the cheapest ingredients on the market and charge 4 star prices. The chicken alfredo noodles and sauce were like a paste! Almost NO chicken in the dish. Morrison s Cafeteria came to mind in fact. The salad was tiny and bland. The roll even tasted like something you would buy in bulk at Wal mart. For dessert, we had a slice of Lemoncello cake and a slice of chocolate cake. The lemon cake tasted and appeared as if someone slapped some CHEAP canned lemon custard, between cheap buttered pound cake. The chocolate cake literally made me. more >My wife and I always see a full Leo s parking lot.

The chocolate cake literally made me contemplate spitting it out and into a napkin. A second bite was not taken. Honestly that bad. My wife and I wandered in wanting to try something different. We got different. The restaurant appears to be still remodeling. Nice private party dining off to the right as you enter. A "live" band was playing on our visit. I use "live" because they were singing from a Karaoke machine. Several patrons were dancing and having a wonderful time. The music wasn t so loud you couldn t have a conversation. Big thumbs up for that. We ordered Bruschetta, I had Pasta e Fagioli while the wife had a Ceasar Salad. The Bruschetta had too much vinegar making it bitter. The soup was almost entirely noodles and lacking flavor. I m told the salad was very good. I ordered Chicken Cacciatore and the wife Chicken Alfredo. The sauces were good but the chicken was boiled vice pan seared with seasonings. I didn t try anything from the bar, however I suspect if you were looking for a bar scene that wasn t centered on sports or wings, didn t involve a great deal of noise this might be a great place, I just wouldn t recommend it for a good meal. You d do much better at Olive Garden and actually save money. Spaghetti Meatballs and Antipasto SaladWe went there with a big group of people. We ordered at different times because of the event. The servers were efficient and polite. The food was poor. I had a salad and the lettuce and toppings were swimming in a bland Italian dressing. Mike had the traditional Spaghetti Meatballs. The meatballs had to have been frozen because of the consistency and I question if they have much meat, only filler. He said the sauce was watered down and tasted like it came out of a can. If you don t have a good sauce you don t have good food. We will not give this place another try. I KNOW ITALIAN FOOD BECAUSE BOTH MY GRNDMOTHERS WERE BORN THERE. AND TAUGHT MY MOTHER THEN ME HOW TO COOK. and B. laughable. and as far as the atmosphere. this place is geared for an older crowd. YOU DONT LIKE IT? GO TO YBOR!!!!!!! please. ITS PACKED EVERY WEEKEND. it is NOT a revolving door. I KNOW ITALIAN FOOD BECAUSE BOTH MY GRNDMOTHERS WERE BORN THERE.

This past Sunday, 8 5 12, my wife and I were down in Palm Harbor (abt 1.25 hrs south of us) visiting our friends with whom we jam and play guitar in my friend s home music and recording studio. We do this periodically (ususally 1 2 times a month or so), and afterwards, we always go out for Italian Food as we all LOVE IT!! It turned out that our favorite Italian Resturant, unknown to us was unfortunately closed for vacation! Ugh! The nerve of them to take vacation (LOL) when we are in the area as we live 1.25 hrs North of there! A little bit of a hike, but well worth it!

Perhaps a dollar or two more. No biggie! The portions were absolutley tremendous, which I love so I can have it again for lunch or dinner the next day. We say thumbs up! Our meals were superb and not at all bland, etc. I can not understand how anyone could not really like this place! We love it and will go back soon! We even met the Owner/Chef, Leo, and what a great guy he is!! A real winner in our book in every way! Thank you, Leo!! The atmosphere was fun, the staff were friendly, the patrons were having a great time dancing but the food was a total disappointment. In a group of seven ordering six different entrees, not one of us could say the food was good enough to warrant another visit. Except for the fresh bread, the bread was great, but they kept trying to take it way before the food was served. I actually had to ask our waitress if the food on my plate was Lasagna. It was served on a large plate, so the layers all slid off; what I saw were pieces of lasagna, not large noodles, seasoned meat (no ricotta) covered with two melted cheese slices and surrounded by crushed tomato puree that looked like it could have been dumped directly from a can. It was the worst Lasagna I have ever had. I also shared a pitcher of Sangria, and it was a bottled Sangria with orange and lime wedges tossed in. Disappointing Other entrees at our table: Fettuccine Carbonara, Chicken and Shrimp Gorgonzola, Prosciutto and Provolone Stuffed Chicken, Chicken Picatta and Surf and Turf. Comments were "too much garlic", "heavy butter not enough cream", "not enough Gorgonzola flavor".
