When the menace known as the Joker emerges from his mysterious past, he wreaks havoc and chaos on the people of Gotham. The Dark Knight must accept one of the greatest psychological and physical tests of his ability to fight injustice.
Oskar Schindler is a vainglorious and greedy German businessman who becomes an unlikely humanitarian amid the barbaric German Nazi reign when he feels compelled to turn his factory into a refuge for Jews. Based on the true story of Oskar Schindler who managed to save about 1100 Jews from being gassed at the Auschwitz concentration camp, it is a testament to the good in all of us.Written by

When Schindler berates Itzhak Stern for sending too many forced-labor camp workers to his factory, Stern reminds him about Amon Göth shooting twenty-five men from Bejski's camp. The Bejski that Stern refers to is Moshe Bejski, who eventually became Oskar Schindler's document forger, and later an Israeli Supreme Court Judge from 1979 to 1991. He is mentioned in the book. In the list, he is #531 on the men's list, and his occupation was a draftsman. See more »
When Rudolph Höss meets with Schindler, Höss states that I.G. Farben needs labor for "his chemical factory" as if the name were for a specific person. I.G. Farben was in fact the name of an industrial conglomerate and the not the name for one particular individual. See more »

The theatrical version juxtaposed images from the film of the actors portraying certain identified "Schindler Jews" as each actual person placed a stone on Schindler's grave. The VHS version does not use this device, showing only the actual persons, credited by name. See more »
In an unprecedented move, when this film was broadcast on US television by NBC in 1997, it was, at Steven Spielberg's insistence, shown nearly uncensored (a sex scene was slightly edited) with all violence and nudity intact. It was the first program to air with the then new "TV-M" (now "TV-MA") rating. See also: Saving Private Ryan. See more »
oh dear, spielberg really should stick to his normal forte of brainless hollywood epics because he is WAY out of his depth here.
I didn't hold out much hope for this one despite all the ridiculously overblown praise. Its amazing how one can go from being the epitome of film-making mediocrity to genius just by choosing the holocaust as your theme!
This film is not a tribute to those that died it is an insult, it reduces their suffering to the level of Indiana Jones and Jurassic Park. I'm surprised he resisted the temptation to stick a dinosaur in it.
But he is, as always, laughing all the way to the bank! This should get 0 out of 10 but unfortunately i'll have to award it a 1.
