Product Description

Amazon.ca

Steven Spielberg had a banner year in 1993. He scored one of his biggest commercial hits that summer with the mega-hit Jurassic Park, but it was the artistic and critical triumph of Schindler's List that Spielberg called "the most satisfying experience of my career." Adapted from the best-selling book by Thomas Keneally and filmed in Poland with an emphasis on absolute authenticity, Spielberg's masterpiece ranks among the greatest films ever made about the Holocaust during World War II. It's a film about heroism with an unlikely hero at its center--Catholic war profiteer Oskar Schindler (Liam Neeson), who risked his life and went bankrupt to save more than 1,000 Jews from certain death in concentration camps.

By employing Jews in his crockery factory manufacturing goods for the German army, Schindler ensures their survival against terrifying odds. At the same time, he must remain solvent with the help of a Jewish accountant (Ben Kingsley) and negotiate business with a vicious, obstinate Nazi commandant (Ralph Fiennes) who enjoys shooting Jews as target practice from the balcony of his villa overlooking a prison camp. Schindler's List gains much of its power not by trying to explain Schindler's motivations, but by dramatizing the delicate diplomacy and determination with which he carried out his generous deeds.

As a drinker and womanizer who thought nothing of associating with Nazis, Schindler was hardly a model of decency; the film is largely about his transformation in response to the horror around him. Spielberg doesn't flinch from that horror, and the result is a film that combines remarkable humanity with abhorrent inhumanity--a film that functions as a powerful history lesson and a testament to the resilience of the human spirit in the context of a living nightmare. --Jeff Shannon

Product Description

Schindler's List, a Steven Spielberg film, is a cinematic masterpiece that has become one of the most honored films of all time. Winner of seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director, it also won every major Best Picture award and an exceptional number of additional honors. Among them were seven British Academy Awards; the Best Picture Awards from the New York Film Critics Circle, the National Society of Film Critics, the National Board of Review, the Producers Guild, the Los Angeles Film Critics, the Chicago, Boston and Dallas Film Critics; a Christopher Award; and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association Golden Globe Awards. Steven Spielberg was further honored with the Directors Guild of America Award. The film presents the indelible true story of the enigmatic Oskar Schindler, a member of the Nazi party, womanizer, and war profiteer who saved the lives of more than 1,100 Jews during the Holocaust. It is the triumph of one man who made a difference, and the drama of those who survived one of the darkest chapters in human history because of what he did. Directed by Steven Spielberg, the film, which also won Academy Awards for Screenplay, Cinematography, Music, Editing and Art Direction, stars an acclaimed cast headed by Liam Neeson, Ben Kingsley, Ralph Fiennes, Caroline Goodall, Jonathan Sagalle and Embeth Davidtz.

Although this 5 time Academy Award winning film certainly gets a beautiful presentation on disc, I both do and do not understand the complaining of the DVD presentation of Schindler's List. But first, let me discuss the benefits of the disc first.
The picture here is impressive, although there are noticeable flaws. The 1.85:1 anamorphic picture showcases excellent detail and rich black levels; at times the picture looked so good I thought that the movie was remastered by Lowery Digital Services. But then minor flaws show up, such as excessive grain and minor print flaws (such as in the sequence where Schindler Jews are calling out their names, I spotted a vertical line). Flaws aside, the picture is still beautiful and Janusz Kaminski's photography is put to good use here.
The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1 Surround. All Dolby and DTS tracks give a sense of place to the film, and while the tracks aren't bass-heavy, they fit the movie's tone perfectly. It demonstrates excellent stereo separation and bass response, all the while not calling attention to itself. The two-sided disc cuts down on cost, and the menus allow one to access each part of the DVD with considerable ease. (The movie is also given French and Spanish spoken languages and subtitles, while the extras have optional subtitles in English, French, and Spanish.)
Now, the disadvantages. I know people were expecting an extras-packed version of this movie, but we only have two real extras included; the "Voices From the List" Featurette and "Behind the Shoah Visual Foundation" Featurette. Both are good extras detailing the various stories recounted by actual Schindler Jews, and while these are substantial enough, I had the feeling more could've been added.

VIDEO:

This 20th anniversary edition of ‘Schindler’s List’ arrives on blu ray with a stunning MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.85:1 encode. The extensive restoration from the original 35mm film negative was personally supervised by Steven Spielberg himself. The transfer was treated with utmost respect, totally faithful to the beautiful Oscar-winning cinematography by Janusz Kaminski. Except for the brief beginning and end of the movie, 95% of the film was shot in gorgeous black-and-white cinematography, with crisp, brilliant contrast levels and vibrant whites. Blacks are inky rich and penetrating. Grain is intact and filmic in nature. Contrasts and details are exceptional. We can clearly make-out individual bricks in the buildings and roads of the Kraków Ghetto. Fine lines are razor-sharp and detailed, making every grain in the wood, stretch of barbwire and bolts in the press machines crystal-clear. Tiny pebbles in the road and leaves on trees are visible throughout. Close-ups of actors reveal every wrinkle, pore and blemish with lifelike clarity, and textures on clothing are equally distinct. The picture is like a majestic picture on canvas. Simply magnificent and beautiful! (5/5)

AUDIO:

Spielberg also supervised the restoration of the film's audio elements, resulting in an equally impressive DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. From the hushed whispers of hiding prisoners to the vicious realities of the Nazi war machine, 'Schindler's List' sounds rather chilling, heartbreaking and emotionally charged. Dialogue is clear, intelligible and both perfectly grounded and perfectly prioritized in the mix. The marriage of visual and aural mastery is magnificent, even when depicting horrifying events some would rather leave to the imagination.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic movie March 20 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Recognized by most critics as one of Steven Spielberg's greatest films, Schindler's List is anchored in culture as one of the greatest movies rendering the Holocaust. Through the story of a German business man, Oskar Schindler, we discover a great story of hope and humanity, through one of the darkest moments of this millennium. Spielberg's directing, combined with a wonderful actor performance from Liam Neeson, Ben Kingsley & Ralph Fiennes creates wonderfully memorable characters. With a visually appealing direction of photography, coupled with the wonderful work from the art department exhibited in costumes and sets, a great screenplay and miraculous story makes this a sensational classic that touches the human mind and leaves us changed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A timeless tale of compassion and morality Jan. 24 2013
By Derek Draven TOP 100 REVIEWER
'Schindler's List' could be called many things, but subtle is not one of them. Aside from a handful of films like 'The Color Purple,' director Steven Spielberg's filmography up until that point had focused mostly on surreal fantasy and adventure films. 'Schindler's List' broke the mold, and catapulted Spielberg into an entirely different class of director by focusing on the immense horrors of World War II, and one man's determination to save the lives of people he had no affiliation with, whatsoever.

Set in 1939 at the beginning of World War II, the story revolves around Oskar Schindler (Liam Neeson), a native German businessman who arrives in Poland to start a company which directly sponsors the Nazi war campaign against Europe. He does this by enlisting the help of Itzhak Stern (Ben Kingsley), a Jew with ties to the local business community who assists him in running this new venture. Funded by local Jewish investors, Schindler gets down to business, and begins hiring Polish Jews, a cheaper alternative to Polish Catholics. This inadvertently saves the lives of the same Jews which were to be sent to Nazi concentration camps. Schindler profits immensely, and strengthens his relationship with the Wehrmacht and the SS. Things change dramatically with the arrival of psychopathic SS Lieutenant Amon Goeth (Ralph Fiennes), who arrives in Kraków to effect Operation Reinhard within the Polish ghetto. Schindler witnesses the horrible atrocities committed by the Nazis against the Jews, and his entire perception about himself, and the war, changes. Schindler manages to build a camp for his workers to save their lives, all under the guise of keeping his factory running in optimal condition.
