Schindler’s List (45:34) Rated R for some Nazi-authorized offensive words.
The pinnacle of Holocaust movies is featured in our 114th episode. Steven Spielberg was not the obvious choice to direct this devastating picture, but Mister Blockbuster found a way to merge art with commerce…and make another blockbuster. It remains revered in most critical circles and you really must see it if you haven’t. Buy some Sparkplug Coffee and then settle in for the List.
