Dave's rating of the film Schindler's List

Most of the complaints against this film are either by those that hate anything with the name Spielberg attached to it or those that claim that it is "too manipulative," whatever that means. Many great directors are applauded for such "manipulation" yet Spielberg is lambasted for it. If an audience allows itself to be manipulated, that's on them. This work stands on its own, regardless of manipulation.
