Schindler's List Review

Updated on October 26, 2010

Schindler's List Review

Jurassic Park, Jaws, E.T., Indiana Jones, and Close Encounters of the Third Kind are best action adventure pictures, which were directed by the Steven Spielberg. In spite many pictures were taken by him but not famous as them. But, Schindler’s List is one of the best film by director Steven Spielberg in 1993. Director/producer Spielberg worked on "Schindler's List" nearly ten years, soon after finishing "E.T.: The Extraterrestrial" in 1983. Emotion is carried out throughout the movie and is a nice classical movie ever seen.

This movie is about Oskar Schindler, the Nazi businessperson who saved 1200 Jews from death during the world war || .More over he is Nazi himself, liked women very much .He had used his Nazi power to save the people around him. Surprisingly the entire film was in black and white but starting scene opens with a color scene that in addition adds reality to film.

Schindler is having a factory, he wants workers to be worked free especially Jews in return he is giving freedom to them. Freedom, which is more valuable than money right. He is kind hearted towards the people but at the same time, he also does it for personal gain. He opened the factory for profit at first. However, in the end he spends money to save Jews. He buys the workers and ends up with a car and a gold ring at the end of the movie.

We look at, such as Amon Goeth (played by Ralph Fiennes) and Itzhak Stern (Ben Kingsley) also other lives in the film. Goeth is a hypocritical villain and he selects Jew as his slaves and do things for him. Surprisingly he fell in love with her. One day when Goeth was on balcony shooting people at the random. Helen Hirsch (Embeth Davidtz) his lover/slave watches in disgust. He did not bother either. He changes very often, at some moment we see a compassionate man where he lets a kid go for not being able to clean a bathtub, after ten seconds he shoots the kid and kill him like a cruel man.

Schindler has a accountant named Itzhak Stern himself a Jew. Because of the Itzhak Stern Schindler changed his attitude and decides to save all workers of him. We can see his concern when he rescues stern from being shipped to a concentration camp. Another one is Kingsley is best for his part .He is afraid and at the same time, he shows his braveness for stand up for beliefs.

Moreover, Neeson, the most powerful character in the film. At first, he also wants just money, woman, and power. Nevertheless, later he had changed his mind to save all the people that he had employed. He does it so gradually. The changing from a flawed Nazi to a flawed Nazi with a heart of gold is remarkably well done and should get the Oscar for best performance as an actor.

John Williams composed the music for Schindler's List. Even the Steven Spielberg was awarded as the best director the film. Janusz Kaminski is awarded as Best Cinematography. Ewa Braun, Allan Starski was awarded as the Best Art Direction. John Williams had won Academy Award for Best Original Score. Moreover, many more awards for a beautiful film.
At the end, Schindler's character is spending money to save Jews with a passion at which we can only wonder. One is left thinking that this new behavior was part of Schindler's basic character, and would have taken place without any external influences. Schindler's List is rated R. Even they are more nudity scenes but they are necessary for the film. Sex scenes are the not necessary things in the movie. Nevertheless, we know that Schindler was a womanizer. Nevertheless, he performed well. Even there is a light amount of vulgarity but everything in the movie is necessary. However, it is the best movie of year.

The film Schindler's List was a box office success and had received seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Original Score, as well as numerous other awards. In 2007, the American Film Institute (AFI) ranked the film eighth on its list of the 100 best American films of all time. It is ALL Time Blockbuster HIT.
