The Greatest Movies We Never Want to See Again: ‘Schindler’s List’

Steven Spielberg’s Holocaust masterpiece follows Oskar Schindler (portrayed by Liam Neeson), a German businessman who saves the lives of more than a thousand Jews by giving them work in his factories. That seems like a heart-warming tale, but Spielberg utilizes black and white to face his audience with the stark realities of the Holocaust and Nazi war crimes, including a devastating sequence in which Jewish prisoners, believing they’re heading off to take a shower, are marched naked into a gas chamber. It sounds horrifying, but that’s hardly the worst of what Holocaust victims endured. Spielberg does his best to present a film that is honest, never flinching away from the truth, even when it’s inconceivably brutal. In order to relay the story of a man who saved the lives of over a thousand people, Spielberg must also confront the crimes of a man who murdered millions.
