Critic Reviews of "Schindlers List"Chicago TribuneFebruary 23, 2016
With seemingly effortless grace and skill, Schindler's List balances fear and exaltation, humor and horror, love and death. It evokes, superbly, a time of savagery and grief, and the inexplicable, stunning compassion that rises within and against it.New York Daily NewsFebruary 17, 2015
Spielberg ultimately remains Spielberg, finding his enduring themes within Thomas Keneally's novel and giving them the full Spielberg treatment.The New RepublicJanuary 07, 2014
For this film Spielberg has done the best directing of his career. Much of his previous work has been clever and some of it better than that, but Schindler's List is masterly.Seattle TimesMay 06, 2013
More than any previous non-documentary Holocaust movie, this one convinces through the accumulation of such detail.Philadelphia InquirerMay 06, 2013
Schindler's List is filmed in black and white, but the triumph of Neeson's portrait and Steven Zaillian's screenplay is that Oskar Schindler remains gray and enigmatic.Orlando SentinelMay 06, 2013
What the visual immediacy of Schindler's List does is to prod each of us to fill in the gaps of emotion for ourselves. To put this another way, the more you are able to invest in this superb, demanding film, the more you are likely to get back.Empire MagazineFebruary 23, 2016
It was (and remains) irreducibly [Spielberg's] masterpiece.The SpectatorFebruary 23, 2016
Spielberg understands that that tension is a problem not just of filming the subject, but of the subject itself: that the tale of any one individual has to struggle to avoid being swamped by the sheer scale of horror.Tulsa WorldFebruary 23, 2016
It's an extraordinary work of vision and passion that raises even the gifted Spielberg to a new level of artistry. And like all great works, it elevates everyone who views it.People MagazineJanuary 06, 2014
Despite admirable intentions and the undeniable splendor of his craft, ultimately what Spielberg has told is the story of the list; he has not told the story of Schindler.Radio TimesJanuary 06, 2014
Spielberg uses stark, brutal realism to put over his powerful points about racism and ethnic cleansing, and the use of stunning black-and-white photography and gritty hand-held camera footage give the film a potent documentary style.Antagony & EcstasyNovember 30, 2013
Not so important socially as it thinks it is, perhaps, but even more important aesthetically and thematically.
