The Passion of the Christ (2004)
The most necessary movie ever made
No words of mine can ever truly explain this film or the history behind it. All I can say is simply for everyone who watches it to realize that everything that Christ is going through is for each individual.
If you or I were the only person in the world, he would have gone through this torture for us. For us to call ourselves "good", is to blind ourselves to the truth. Want to see a truly good and loving person? Watch this film
An amazing movie with such a powerful message it will make you question every single thing you do in your life from this point on...
It already has for me...
Jakob the Liar (1999)
Possibly the most underrated movie of the last five years
It's always a shame to see movies that we feel bring so much to the table, be given bad reviews or do poorly at the box-office. While people who say the "holocaust film" has become a trite and overdone genre may be correct, this film is an outstanding piece of work that suffered mainly because it was released around the same time as the fairly similar "Life is Beautiful." with Roberto Benini. The story follows a jewish man named Jakob, who had been forced into a ghetto by the nazis. (hollywood's favorite villians by far) After overhearing a radio transmission, he relays the information to his companions that the russians are coming closer to liberating the ghetto. His friends misunderstand this, and believe that he himself has a radio, and press him for more at every turn. He is forced to make up news, in order to give his fellow prisoners hope. This film is not only about one man bringing hope to people who otherwise have none. It is about the sacrifices that some people are willing to make, in order to keep that hope alive. The jewish doctor in this film was actually in the original movie (made in germany in the mid 70's) The sacrifice the doctor makes is very moving, and gives a clear cut message of the film. At the time, many critics disliked this film. If they had a chance to review it again however, I think that they would most likely change their perspective. Nine out of Ten.
A terrific telling of a horrific story.
With the exception of the GREAT (only word to describe it) Schindler's List, without question the best holocaust-esque movie I have ever seen. It tells of 15 men getting together, and at times nonchalantly deciding the future of a half dozen million people, in the time it takes to cook a leg of lamb. However it gives a human element to some of its characters. Some are against this "final solution." Though there are 15 people involved, for the most part it gets them all involved, and pays attention to the smallest of details. It is an excellent re-creation of one of the most historically important days in the twentienth century. It is recommended to ALL people, who enjoy seeing and learning of the events that shaped the world that they grew up in, and the world which they live in today.
