Sometimes I find that the most difficult scenes aren't necessarily the ones that include death/violence. In Schindler's List, one little German girl throws mud at the Jews entering the gehtto, literally screaming"Goodbye Jews! Goodbye Jews!" I found that scene to be so incredibly painful...

BTW-Martha, good luck! I hope you're okay while watching it!

Thanks for all the opinions on the film. I'm still considering it for this weekend. The problem is that The Man is out of town again, so I'm on my own in the middle of the night.
Martha, I really hope you get to see the Pianist...it really is worth seeing...and while it's not exactly an easy movie to sit through, the ending is well worth it. I really hope you are able to see the whole thing!

I know you probably don't feel like it, but I go to movies all the time alone, and really enjoy it!

also not to defend the actions and crimes of Roman Polanski, but are you all familiar with his family background? I see this movie as sort of a tribue to them as well as others killed in the holocaust.

Family:
Father: Ryszard Polanski (aka Ryszard Liebling), painter, plastics manufacturer; Polish Jew; died 1984 of cancer
Mother: Bula Polanski (née Katz); Russian; half Jewish; left first husband to marry Ryszard Polanski 1932; died in the gas chamber while four months pregnant at Auschwitz concentration camp during WWII

If you're going to boycott this movie because of Polanski, I also don't suggest you see About Schmidt. The crime in question occured in Jack Nicholson's house so really, don't see any his movies.

I can take all the horror images from Schindler's List. I can take the violence, the bitter words, the humanity (or lack thereof) of the whole ordeal as portrayed. However, I can not take one of the last scenes in the film when they give Schindler the ring and he collapses in tears going on about how he could have saved more, that always... ALWAYS gets to me.

Ever since then, I've been too emotional to see Holocaust movies. I can't bring myself to see The Pianist in fear of opening the floodgates again. Pitiful, I know.

Headache says his nickname is "Long Dong Silver", Cujo says it's just a nickname.

Cujo would know, believe me.
