Schindler’s List Special Edition

It'll forever remain one of the great, blessed blips of cinema history. Flashy populist Spielberg crafted in '93 the definitive Holocaust portrayal. He educated and disturbed while avoiding exploitation. Scale and intimacy were balanced, the intensity was just the right side of too much. Austrian businessman Schindler (Liam Neeson) bribes the SS and saves over a thousand Jews from death. It's the many who didn't make the list you think about. Ralph Fiennes is a mesmerising bully.

Austrian businessman Schindler (Liam Neeson) bribes the SS and saves over a thousand Jews from death. It’s the many who didn’t make the list you think about. Ralph Fiennes is a mesmerising bully. This transcends because of Spielberg’s restraint; not just in the black-and-white photography but in what’s shown and what’s (just) hidden. A moving miracle.
