One of my favorite historical movies.,
This review is from: Schindler's List (Full Screen Edition) (DVD)
Being one of the most obsessive students in history I try to exploit a historical movies' weakness by making a joke about some misquotation or enormous inaccuracy.
For once I could not. Schindler's List is such a haunting masterpiece I get chills whenever I hear the soundtrack. Everything is done so dramatically and it all fits together so perfectly it's like your there as its occuring. It's a movie that with all the bad things going on in the world there are still (Some) good people and we can all relate to that. After the engrossing 3 and a hald hour movie is over you relize that the holocaust really did happen and in some parts of the world genocidal activities really do still take place.
This movie is NOT for the weak of heart as it graphically depicts humans being beat, shot, tortured, starved, and even gassed in hauntingly graphic sequences. Kids shouldn't see this movie as many children are depicted being murdered. We can all learn a lesson from this movie...whatever it be.
