THE NIGHT PORTER (1974)
A highly controversial drama about the Holocaust, trauma, and sadomasochism, among other things. It’s probably better than that combination makes it sound.
An absolutely essential first-person historical document about one of the worst events in history.
SOPHIE’S CHOICE (1982)
Meryl Streep’s all-timer of a performance can’t make me ever want to watch this movie again.
SCHINDLER’S LIST (1993)
Maybe the definitive movie about one of the worst events in human history.
