I've pretty much disliked everything Spielberg's done since Temple of Doom, but I think Schindler's List is the best of the lot. Yes, the ending is atrocious. And certainly one has to question the whole idea of turning a story about the Holocaust into a heroic feel-good story (as amplified by the ending). But it's still a deeply affective film. Granted it's "easy" to score sympathy points by making a Holocaust film, but Spielberg reins in his more mawkish tendencies here and (for the most part) lets the powerful material speak for itself. It's not a great film, but it's a powerful one.
