It does not matter that this movie based on real people, is now 20 years old. It is a timeless and provocative representation of Oskar Schindler's monumental task of saving 1100 Jewish people from certain death. The Nazi officers, though evil in their overall treatment and murder of over 6 million people, are also shown to be shallow, easily duped by wine and song, and sometimes almost simply giddy with the power that comes with unbridled inhuman treachery. The movie is in itself a moral lesson - that even one man can make a difference, and that not all Germans were hell bent on destroying a whole generation of Jews. Was it necessary to see the character played by Ralph Fienes, take careful aim with his rifle and shoot a young boy in the head as he walked in the opposite direction? Yes, it was, because it showed how power gone wrong, is the sheer embodiment of evil personified. This move should be a mandatory film for all high school students to see, and then have question and answer classes afterwards. It encapsulates not only how much Hitler's evil intentions wrecked havoc throughout Germany and Europe. It also shows that ultimately a good man, in spite of the world around him in fiery madness, is the ultimate hero who, and at the end of the movie, still would have wanted to save "one more" Jew. I have watched "Schindler's List" many times, and find new points to think about each and every time. It is a must see for all movie buffs.
