I’ve seen the Schindler’s List when I was in my Junior years and all I can remember is the scene where people are taking shower – all together and naked. Until this time, I’m just can’t appreciate the story – I think I have to watch it again to understand it more. Should I start renting DVDs now and prepare popcorns? As far as I can remember,  this film runs more than 2 hours – not sure about it =)

By the way, thanks IMDB for the list =)
