Man what an emotionally affecting movie!
Neeson, Kingsley, and Feinnes played excellent performances. Top notch.
John Williams wrote a brilliant soundtrack, that parts of his other movie themes remind me of (Schindler's) but don't quite hit that note.
The movie brought home the horror of the Holocaust and perhaps it is Spielberg's best film ever? He took on a very tough subject and didn't pander it at all. It must have been very emotionally trying for him, too. I mean it's so hard to wonder how on earth the hatred of the Nazis allowed itself to manifest itself into such organized slavery and murder in the modern world.
Have the nutcases in the Muslim dictatorships ever viewed this movie? I'm sure it's banned in Iran
Tragedy befalls a lot of different people - and this time it landed right in the Western World. That's one reason why we make such a big deal about the Holocaust (yeah, it's because it affected white people ) But prejudice against those who won't assimilate goes on today - against Mexicans, or whomever. No, I won't even compare the Border Patrol to the Nazi SS, and it's not the same thing, but this world has a long way to go still - and not just in the 3rd World.
