These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Everyone Is Jesus in Purgatory: Very much like in Lang's other famous work, the Nazis were completely oblivious the blatant Take That made against them in the film - or, for that matter, the film's intentionally Grey and Gray Morality. Joseph Goebbels, who was directly mocked in the movie as der Schränker, said that it was "fabulous! Against this 'humanitarianism' tripe. For the death sentence!" It took them the emigration of Lang to finally see the movie for what it was.
