Do check out the less well known Riefenstahl films too, they're much more telling. "Sieg des Glaubens" is about the Parteitag before the one featured in "Triumph.." and much more down to earth. You can see Roehm (thats why it was banned by the Nazis) and Hitler makes a speech that could be televised on Fox or CNN today without problems. "Unsere Wehrmacht" also would pass as a stock documentary nowadays.
It's pretty wrong to concentrate on the video clip esthetics in "Olympia" as fascist themselves, I think. It's about what kind of ideas are being transported that way.
