“All you have to do is tell me what it's worth to you. What's a person worth to you?” - Oskar Schindler
Neeson is stunning in one of the most powerful performances of the last thirty years. This in a film that was once rejected as an idea by a studio executive as ‘a depressing story nobody will want to watch.’ The scenes between Neeson’s Schindler and Ralph Fiennes’ icy camp commandant are mesmerising- the banality of the evil surrounding them infusing every sentence. Was Tom Hanks’ turn in Philadelphia really more deserving of the Oscar? A remarkable role in an essential film.
