Deservingly and routinely making most "greatest film ever made" lists, SCHINDLER'S LIST is top-to-bottom cinematic excellence that is one of a handful of films every human being owes it to themselves to experience. Shot with a documentary-like realism through Janusz Kaminski's exquisitely-realized, Oscar-winning cinematography, this film began the great DP's partnership with filmmaker Steven Spielberg that lasts until this day. A wrenching masterpiece that finds Spielberg at the peak of his powers, SCHINDLER'S LIST stands as a monument to the millions who perished in the Holocaust while also reminding viewers that even in humanity's darkest moments, light can shine through.
