Incredibly intense movie
4 September 2020 | by jlwalker19-1See all my reviews

I have seen Schindler's List twice but will probably never watch it again. Saw The Birds Alfred Hitchcock and it creeped me out and will never watch it again. I have seen every kind of movie imaginable, thousands of them.

But this is one of the most intense movies I have ever seen. It seemed like I could feel what every character except the bad guys was feeling. By the last 20 minutes or so I almost cried. But I was in too much shock to even cry. Is there any other way to say it, this movie got to me.

Then to top it all off it ended at my bedtime. Don't think I will be able to sleep.

A gripping story, so realistic you feel like you are a part of it. The acting is just incredible. Been watching French movies for a good while and I like them better than what comes out of Hollywood. At least in this century.

You should try and make it through this entire movie because it tells such an important story. Anyone who may deny that Anti-Semitism exists anymore should watch it. Or anyone who knows it still exists.

Yes we may watch movies to escape reality but every once in a while we need to watch a real movie about real people to get a dose of true reality, to shake us out of our comfort zone. We need to pull our heads out of the sand and our fantasy world and experience some realism. It is cathartic for the soul.
