Movie Review: In ‘Labyrinth of Lies,’ the Auschwitz trials break a conspiracy of silence

By Stephen Holden
The earnest post-Holocaust drama “Labyrinth of Lies” can be viewed as a sequel of sorts to “Judgment at Nuremberg,” the much-decorated 1961 Stanley Kramer film about the Nuremberg trials of the 1940s, in which top-ranking Nazis were tried for crimes against humanity. The trials are still imprinted in many people’s minds as the ultimate moment of reckoning, after which a horrific chapter of history was more or less closed and the world moved on. [link]

Labyrinth of Lies” is rated R (Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian). It includes a sex scene.
