    There is something very... honest about it. Stammering and not being a good public speaker is something a lot of people struggle with, and it got me when he said he didn't know what Hitler was saying, but he knew he was saying it well. That was part of how Hitler was able to do what he did, he was a master at public speaking, and that has a bigger impact then one might believe.

    I can see that Geoffrey Rush will be eating up every scene he's in as well :)
