Directed by Steven Spielberg
Netflix says… Liam Neeson stars as Oskar Schindler, a greedy German factory owner made rich by exploiting cheap Jewish labor. But as World War II unfolds, he becomes an unlikely humanitarian, spending his entire fortune to save 1,100 Jews from Auschwitz.
To say this is a great film is seriously underselling it. To say that it’s likely to leave you an emotional wreck probably underestimates your ability to express emotion.
Schindler’s List is incredibly difficult to watch in certain moments of the film. Not that it compares to the reality of the situation. And there’s really not a lot I can say… or want to say… I think it just needs to be experienced. And as difficult as it can be to watch and to process, it is a worthwhile experience.
It is gut-wrenching to see the scene where, despite all he was able to do, despite all the people he was able to save, Oskar comes to believe he could have, should have saved more. So many tears…
