Schindler's List
My Rating:
(out of 5 stars)
4.5 Stars
Schindler's List Poster
Primary Location: First Saw:In Theatre Saw at/with: Showcase Orange
Rating: R Year: 1993 Category: Drama
Director: Steven Spielberg Time: 197 min. Writer: Thomas Keneally & Steven Zaillian

Mine: Very powerful. Amazing use of black and white with a bit of color. Just breathtakingly sad, powerful, frighting and uplifting all at once.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Staggering adaptation of Thomas Keneally's best-seller about the real-life Catholic war profiteer who initially flourished by sucking up to the Nazis, but eventually went broke saving the lives of more than 1,000 Polish Jews by employing them in his factory, manufacturing crockery for the German army. Filmed almost entirely on location in Poland, in gritty b&w, but with a pace to match the most frenzied Spielberg works, this looks and feels like nothing Hollywood has ever made before. The three central characters rate--and receive--unforgettable performances: Neeson, who's towering as Oskar Schindler; Kingsley, superb as his Jewish accountant (and conscience); and Fiennes, who's frightening as the odious Nazi commandant. Outstanding screenplay by Steven Zaillian and cinematography by Janusz Kaminski. Spielberg's most intense and personal film to date. Seven Oscars include Best Picture, Director, Adapted Screenplay, Art Direction, Cinematography, Editing, and Original Score (John Williams).
