What a film. I cried like a baby at the end when Schindler said he could have saved more people. What an excellent job from Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, and especially Steven Spielberg!

Spielberg's masterpiece, and one of the very best films of the 1990s. The masterful filmmaking and the flawless execution of the various horrifying sequences portraying the cruelty and viciousness suffered by the Jews leave you speechless.

Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes give astounding performances as two opposites, and it's a crime that Fiennes was robbed of the Oscar, as his character is simply one of the most terrifying villains of all time.

After watching this movie for the first time (and, to date, the only time), I spent a good hour just staring at the ceiling trying to decompress and understand both the horrifying and uplifting parts of this film as well as bask in the truly remarkable film-making. A film worthy of one simple adjective to ensure that there is no confusion: incredible.

In 1993's Oscar winner's case, I must give credit to an old (and now deceased) German professor of mine, with whom I had a discussion at the time and who convinced me not to go see it on principle. I'm not even sure what the issue was anymore, but going in and coming out of it, I felt a deep ambivalence for two such "principles". One was that the movie felt like it was making millions on the back of the Holocaust, which no amount of "awareness" could justify, and this is a criticism it doesn't really deserve because the movie ISN'T about the Holocaust per se, but is still about atrocities committed in German work camps. And I know I wouldn't be complaining if it wasn't a Steven "blockbuster" Spielberg picture. Like I said, ambivalence. My second problem is something I've come to in time and which bugs me no matter what, and that's the concept of the White Messiah in movies. It's like Hollywood wants to tell stories about downtrodden ethnic populations, but feels it can only do so by focusing on the one white person who overcomes their racism to become a positive force in the lives of a group of whatever ethnic people. The "good German" of Schindler's List, like say, Kevin Costner's track and field coach in McFarland USA, really did exist, and perhaps the stories are written by privileged white folk who get their books optioned, as opposed to the victims and "po' folks" who actually survived or achieved in that story, but it still puts my teeth on edge. So did I just compare Schindler's List to movies like Dangerous Minds? So be it. To review it without comparisons, I'll just say it's well acted, it's well made, it's not boring, it presents things that people should be aware about. It's just not the first or final word on the Holocaust, and is definitely not worthy of that reputation. It was fine, but nowhere near "where was this all my life?!" which is the rating I really want to give out.

It's one of those movies that is just amazing in every way, yet incredibly unpleasant to watch. The story of Oskar Schindler and more notably the jew victims of the 2nd world war is just heartbreaking and it really does portray the worst of humanity.
It's worth the watch, if only to reflect upon the evils of the world. Or perhaps to see how much one person can actually accomplish, if they put their minds to it. But I can't promise you that you'll ever want to watch it again. It's a masterpiece, but it's one of those movies you need to watch but will have running in your mind for a good while to come.

I'm left pretty upset after watching this film. Not only because of the horrible atrocities portrayed, but also upset with myself for having not seen this film before now! Wow. It is truly a masterpiece.

Incredible movie that one might consider empathyporn. Fantastic depictions of the fear and suffering of the Jewish people. Extremely believable dialogue and a powerful performance from Liam Neeson.
