Very good adaptation of Albert Speer's autobiography. "Inside the Third Reich" tells the story of Albert Speer (Rutger Hauer), Adolf Hitler's personal architect and reportedly "only true friend". The film examines Speer's rise from obscurity within the Nazi Party ranks leading to his days of fame in 1930s when he was responsible for building several Nazi monuments.

The second portion of the film focuses on Speer's tenure as Minister of Armaments during the Second World War, where Speer was one of the primary motivators in keeping Hitler's war machine alive. Speer's final destiny, also depicted in the film, leads to accusations of war crimes resulting in a 25 year prison sentence.
