Schindler’s List

There’s nothing funny about this one

MAYBE

Release date: December 15, 1993
Director: Steven Spielberg
Language: English

Who should watch this movie: Goyim. People who have never seen it before. 

When should you watch this movie: There’s not really a “good time” for this movie

The sell: I am of the opinion that everyone should see Schindler’s list at least once in their lives and no more than that. There are a lot of movies about the holocaust, some better than others, and Schindler’s List is one of the best. It treats the subject matter with artful sensitivity without toning down the brutality. It chooses a unique (and true)  story from a plethora of horrific anecdotes and tells it well. That being said, much of this movie is painful to watch and if you are Jewish and were thus inundated with Holocaust education from an early age, it is totally appropriate to skip this one.
