Ich Will! starts in the tomb of teenage Nazi martyr Hans Mallon, a young man that was killed by Communists in 1931. On the tomb reads “The Fame of the Dead Lives Forever,” a motto stressing the Nazi value of giving one's life for the collective good of Germany. The rest of Ich Will! features everything from members of the Hitler Youth kayaking to parades taking place around various German towns. Kenneth Anger tinted the short with the color red, most likely to stress the "Satanic" Nazi religion of blood and ancestor worship, not to mention the "blood" these German youth would have permanently embedded on their hands after the German defeat at the conclusion of World War II. I must admit that I have seen my fair share of Nazi footage and none of the footage in Ich Will! seems like recycled material like you find on the History Channel, where it feels like they play the same three clips of Adolf Hitler over-and-over again. Of course, Kenneth Anger is no fan (only a fetishist) of the Third Reich as he made clear in his sadomasochistic Nazi leather-fest Scorpio Rising. Like Scorpio Rising, Ich Will! stresses the homoerotic undertones in male camaraderie and hero (Hitler) worship.
