Schindler’s List

BBBBB

(out of 5)


Powerful, unforgettable drama that is Steven Spielberg’s best drama.  is excellent as a high-ranking Nazi who saves the lives of one thousand Polish Jews by keeping them employed at his factory and therefore keeping them out of the concentration camps during World War II. At first it is a decision based purely on profit, but as time passes and the horrors of the Holocaust are revealed to him, he begins to grow a conscience. Skillfully shot and edited, the pace never lags for a moment throughout its three hour running time, and Spielberg eschews his usual moral simplicity and instead brings about a masterpiece of intelligence and thought-provoking insight.
