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 Best 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 DVD debut of the Oscar-winning film delivers an outstanding image and sound experience (both 5.1 and DTS tracks are provided), although the single disc needs to be flipped to see the entire film. The centerpiece of the extra features is the new 70-minute "Voices from the List," in which the men and women saved by Oskar Schindler talking about their experiences and memories. The film does an excellent job of complementing the film without overshadowing it in any way. It came out of the Shoah Foundation, which Steven Spielberg started after the film to record first-hand experiences of the Holocaust. A 10-minute featurette updates the foundation's efforts. Unfortunately, there is no insight on the making of the film except a few liner notes. Perhaps the film has such a revered status, deconstructing it might be something Spielberg doesn't want to do, but it's frustrating not to hear from the cast and crew who helped put together one of the 1990s' most distinguished and well-crafted films. --Doug Thomas

Overall, it's great what Schindler did but a little upsetting watching him waste time and money with the evil Nazis in control of the torture. In the end one should have no remorse for anything he did because he did so much more good!
I love this story and it makes me want to do more for our human family (we all are one family, brothers & sisters) but for most of of us we will never have to go through anything so terrible. Anything this motivating and heroic is just amazing!
I will watch this movie many times but others tell me they would never own it and couldn't stomach it more than once or twice. This should be a high school requirement for everyone everywhere.
CD of just the soundtrack and it is among the best I have ever heard. I also bought and learned the three solos for violin and piano. I can't praise this movie enough! Somehow it captures the idea that humanity may be threatened but it cannot be destroyed!
I've seen the DVD version, and was floored by the quality of the Blu-Ray. Black and white/contrast is phenomenally good, details and sharpness are top-notch, film grain is excellent, and sound quality is clear, crisp, and distinct - especially with hushed and background tones... the restoration is truly spectacular.
The Blu-Ray, as a 20th anniversary edition, the time and care put into it does make it a must-have.
And, obviously, the drama, cinematography, moral of the story, the pain and extortion, the murder of innocent people -- NEVER FORGET.
This movie is an absolute masterpiece, in terms of storytelling, acting, writing... the only sad part is that it's based on real life events... And life shouldn't have to be so horrific... why do people treat each other so badly...
However, it is a LONG movie. I don't recommend it if you aren't ready to pay attention, immerse yourself in the characters and serious storyline, read some English subtitles, see graphic and tear-jerking images then pass this one for now.
Easier and very enjoyable if you're in the mood to get serious and appreciate this horrific time in history, and involve yourself in the heroic yet self-serving leading role.
Drags on in some places depending on your mood puts it at a 4.
