‘Schindler’s List’ Movie Summary

Adapted from Thomas Keneally’s novel, Steven Spielberg’s masterful film tells the incredible true story of Oskar Schindler. Initially a member of the Nazi party, the Catholic Schindler risks his career and life, and ultimately goes bankrupt, to employ 1,100 Jews in his crockery factory during the Holocaust. Schindler’s Jewish accountant serves as his conscience, as Schindler conducts business with an obstinate and cruel Nazi commander, who viciously kills Jewish prisoners from the balcony of his villa overlooking a prison camp.

Have any of you see Son of Saul? Schindlers list is pretty tame in comparison. The entire movie is from the point of view of a prisoner who is in charge of herding people intto the gas chamber. It’s filmed in a way that puts you right there(all you see is what happens around this character) The film takes place during the last few months of the camps, so you see how crazy the final days were. Feels like a vision of pretty much hell on earth, a really tough watch, but amazing filmmaking. surprised that Matt picked gaslight, he usually doesn’t pick movies from that era.

I have not seen Son of Saul. It sounds like another really good movie that is horrible to watch.
I really enjoy your comments, Eddie. Thank you.

Thanks, Lori. As far as what Matt said about the subtitles, I don’t think Spielberg would have had any English spoken in the film if he was making it today. Today movies with subtitles can do well with American audiences, while in 1993 it would have made a movie that was already a hard sell even harder for mainstream audiences to embrace, even with the universal acclaim it received. As far as whatnPatrick said about how this was a big shift in Spielberg career in going from mainstream filmmaker to serious filmmaker, I find it intersting that he now is
less successful with his attempts at mainstream blockbusters than he is with his serious dramas. The BFG was a big flop, and it looks like ready player one will underperform. While the post and bridge of spies were modest success. Heck, I think Lincoln is spielbergs highest grossing film of the last 10 years! Who would’ve guessed this was where his career was headed in the 80s.
