The DFT is showing the Hungarian film Fateless this weekend. Wow, what a powerful film. I believe the film will haunt me for years to come and I am now driven to find the book. Some may look at it and think “Another film about the Holocaust?” but this particular film is in a class of its own. It ranks with Schindler’s List as one of the most powerful and important films about the Holocaust.

My father is in town visiting, so a trip to the DFT is mandatory. It is from my father I developed my love for film. In fact, he taking a very early morning flight tomorrow, simply so we can go to tonight’s showing of The Big Parade (silent film with live piano) at the DFT.

If you haven’t been tot the DFT, you need to make time to go. This season is packed with amazing, heartbreaking, memorable films. You’ll be glad you found the time. It is unlike any other movie experience you’ll ever have.

    Sorry, but Schindler’s List is “Hollyeood – Trash” and not a good film about the Holocaust.
    The book: Fateless by Imre Kertesz

    Everyone has their own movie opinions. I do think Schindler’s List tells the story well and it is a story that should be told. Personally when I think Hollywoo-ed Holocaust films, I think of “Life is beautiful”.

    I have never said that Schindler’s List is a bad movie or that you should share my opinion. But the film does not tell the true story. And it is very sad if people think it does. By the way it is quite difficult to compare Schindler’s List and La Vita e bella. But this is only my opinion…

    The accompanying pianist for the Big Parade was incredible and the whole experience was delightful . . . yes, my first time at the DFT.

    Don’t forget “Wings” is playing this coming Sunday at 7 and then the “Wedding March” is the following sunday. The only way to see a silent film is on a big screen with live music.

    Did you know “Wings” won the very first Best Picture Oscar?
