In 2007, the American Film Institute ranked Schindler’s List 8th on its list of the 100 best American films. Directed and co-produced by Steven Spielberg, Schindler’s List is based on the novel Schindler’s Ark by Thomas Keneally, an Australian novelist. The film tells the story of Oskar Schindler, a German businessman who saved the lives of more than a thousand mostly Polish-Jewish refugees during the Holocaust by employing them in his factories. It stars Liam Neeson as Schindler, Ralph Fiennes as Schutzstaffel (SS)-officer Amon Göth, and Ben Kingsley as Schindler’s Jewish accountant Itzhak Stern. John Williams composed the score.

Not only is this film  good, it is one of the greats, the story is good the acting is amazing, but the cineamatography, sets, costumes and the directing is par excellence. As one critic states, Ultimately, the film is memorable as much for simple testimony as for the cinematic art it displays.
