Schindler's List, a Steven Spielberg film, is a cinematic masterpiece that has become one of the most honored films of all time. Winner of seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director, it also won every major Best Picture award and an exceptional number of additional honors. Among them were seven British Academy Awards; the Best Picture Awards from the New York Film Critics Circle, the National Society of Film Critics, the National Board of Review, the Producers Guild, the Los Angeles Film Critics, the Chicago, Boston and Dallas Film Critics; a Christopher Award; and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association Golden Globe Awards. Steven Spielberg was further honored with the Directors Guild of America Award. The film presents the indelible true story of the enigmatic Oskar Schindler, a member of the Nazi party, womanizer, and war profiteer who saved the lives of more than 1,100 Jews during the Holocaust. It is the triumph of one man who made a difference, and the drama of those who survived one of the darkest chapters in human history because of what he did. Directed by Steven Spielberg, the film, which also won Academy Awards for Screenplay, Cinematography, Music, Editing and Art Direction, stars an acclaimed cast headed by Liam Neeson, Ben Kingsley, Ralph Fiennes, Caroline Goodall, Jonathan Sagalle and Embeth Davidtz.

The film has been newly remastered for this Blu-ray and it looks terrific. The transfer is natural, film-like, and features great sharpness, detail, and shadow depth. The Blu-ray really showcases Janusz Kaminski's masterful black and white photography. The audio is equally excellent and does a great job presenting the film's sound design and John Williams' music.
The biggest disappointment from this Blu-ray is the film's supplements. I guess Spielberg wants to treat this film as a historical document, and likewise the only extras are testimonies from Holocaust survivors and a brief piece about the Shoah Foundation (both the DVD #2 found in this set). While I understand the decision, I feel the movie also deserves to have its own story told. Why did Spielberg choose to make this film? How was it developed? How did the cast approach their roles? None of these topics are discussed on this Blu-ray. The only real document of the film's production we have is Franciszek Palowski's book "The Making of Schindler's List: Behind the Scenes of an Epic Film".
The film speaks for itself.
