Third Week of December, 2003
Deliberately, and elegantly shot in black & white, Schindler’s list brings out the best in Spielberg. I had wanted to watch this movie for eons – I loved it’s music even before I heard of the movie, and I was extremely lucky that I got my hands on a DVD. What’s wonderful about the movie and about Schindler, is how little an emphasis is placed on altruism. Having recently seen and admired The Pianist, I had thought that I had sensitized myself to the Holocaust. But Schindler’s List’s clarity and power is simply amazing. All superlatives here, I loved this. You should watch this one if you haven’t yet.
