***Schindler's List (1993)*** I watched this again the other night when it was on Sky. Even though I have seen it before and I know what is coming, I still find it a very powerful and thought provoking film. I think most certainly for young adults it is essential viewing.

For any of you unfamiliar with this film, let me tell you two things. A - it's not your usual Spielberg happy clappy delight and B - I'm ashamed of you... This is what I would happily call a modern movie classic as it's a true masterpiece of cinema that encapsulates stunning cinematography, real...

Schindlers List is a film based on the treatment of the Jews in Nazi Germany. The film is very emotional and I defy anyone to not be moved by it. Directed by Speilberg this black and white film is one of the best I have ever seen, the subject is approached with tact and sensitivity and this...

This is universally acclaimed to be one of the best movies. Steven Speilberg who has many great movies to his name directed Schindler’s list.

Oh I don't want to write this. Can't I write about something else? Please? Oliver needs writing and I have a good intro to that. Go on. Don't get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed watching Schindler's List and found it to be a very moving film, but it's such a sensitive and emotional film that I...

ConsMay be too gory for some people

Schindlers List was directed by Steven Spielberg in 1993, the main characters are Oscar Schindler(Liam Neeson), Itzhak Stern(Ben Kingsley) and Amon Goeth(Ralph Fiemes). The film is a 15, mainly because of the violence and blood in the film. Oscar Schindler is a Nazi Party member who travelled to...

ConsMay prove too uncomfortble viewing for some.

While I’ve never been a huge fan of Steven Spielberg’s usual adventure/fantasy style of storytelling seen within such films as The Mask Of Zorro and E.T., I have to admit that it takes one hell of a talented (and brave) man to make a film like Schindler’s List. It's a story of real-life...

“The list is Life”

published 15/01/2001

ProVirtually flawless

ConsApart from the epilogue

Without question, Schindler's List should be on the National Curriculum. An accessible yet unflinching film about the Holocaust, that is by turn thrilling, appalling, compassionate, deeply upsetting, authorative, and finally uplifting. Spielberg left the project until he felt he was mature enough...

There's defiantly no shortage of Holocaust films around, but Schindler's list is probably the most well known, big-budget film on a very sensitive subject, so how does it do? Well it's one of the most absorbing films I've ever watched, the black and white in high-def, the huge amounts of extras...

The Holocaust is terrible atrocity during the Second World War when the Nazi's killed countless Jews. It was always going to be a difficult subject to make a film about, but in 1993, Steven Spielberg released the film, Schindler's List, which was well received by audiences and critics alike...

Product Information : Schindler's List (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

Based on a true story, SCHINDLER'S LIST is Steven Spielberg's epic drama of World War II Holocaust survivors and the man who unexpectedly came to be their saviour. Unrepentant womaniser and war profiteer Oskar Schindler uses Polish Jews as cheap labour to produce cookware for the Third Reich. But after witnessing the violent liquidation of the walled ghetto where the Krakow Jews have been forced to live, Schindler slowly begins to realise the immense evil of Nazism. When his employees are sent to a work camp, they come under the terrorising reign of sadistic Nazi Amon Goeth (Ralph Fiennes). With the help of his accountant, Itzhak Stern (Ben Kingsley), Schindler creates a list of 'essential' Jews. Bribing Goeth, Schindler manages to get 1,100 people released from the camp and brought to the safety of his munitions factory in Czechoslovakia. Spielberg's glorious film is wondrously evocative, visually stunning, and emotionally stirring.
