Schindler's List | 1994 | R | - 6.10.5

Director Steven Spielberg's film centers around Oskar Schindler (Liam Neeson), a German entrepreneur and bon vivant, who became a hero when he managed to save his Jewish employees from certain death in the Nazi death camps.

SEX/NUDITY 6 - There are two brief sex scenes: a man grabs a woman's breasts through a wet t-shirt. There is both male and female full frontal nudity with exposed genitals, and hundreds of naked men and women run through concentration camps, with several close-up shots. These nude scenes are disturbing rather than titillating.

VIOLENCE/GORE 10 - The film presents a horrific, stomach-wrenching depiction of the holocaust: many, many people are seen being killed in one form or another. They are shot at point blank range, children are slaughtered, many more are killed in gas chambers. It is the kind of violence that stays with one for a long time -- it is very, very disturbing because it is not only graphic, but also very realistic.

LANGUAGE 5 - The F-word is used about a half a dozen times, and there are several other profanities.

MESSAGE - You save one life, and you save the world.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
