I saw Schindler's List on vid, finally. I was kinda in-between on it. It's solid and earnest, but it occurred to me that the deliberate beauty of the cinematography was somehow out of keeping with the somber subject matter, and I found myself wishing for perfunctorily unbeautiful, washed out color photography instead of all that arty b/w chiaroscuro that seemed not quite , er, kosher.
