Schindler's List

Steven Spielberg

Every time I watch this Steven Spielberg masterpiece, based on a novel by Thomas Kennelly, I have discovered something new. Be it the fabulous editing where each scene merges into the next effortlessly yet meaningfully, giving the viewer a piece of perspective; the only feature in colour (the little girl in red) in the otherwise intentionally black and white movie; the nakedness, both in the figurative and the actual sense, the shocking atrocities committed on the Polish Jews by the Nazis, the rock solid characterisation of the three main protagonists and above all the dialogues which are extra ordinary. This multiple Oscar winner was declared the best movie on the Holocaust. In my opinion, it is simply everything that a movie should be.
