So, how bad is The Pianist?

I'd like to go see it, but too much Holocaust imagery and I either can't breathe in the theater or I wake up unable to breathe from the terror. No lie; I can't take it. It affects me physically.

So, if I want to go see this movie, can I? I really don't want to wake up unable to move or breathe.

While you are completely accurate in your descriptions of emotions that stem from viewing this film, I still HIGHLY suggest you take some time to see a beautiful piece of cinema.

The thing that I have issues with regarding The Pianist is that it was directed by a child molester who's fleed the United States so he wont be prosecuted for his crimes.

Honestly, I dont know how people can just let that go.

It's an incredible movie. I don't think a movie depicted during a war time cannot be sad but this movie is incredible. I wouldn't pass it up. Adrien Brody should have won every single award possible for his performance. He was amazing and I was so happy on Sunday nite to see him win. I don't want to give away too much of the movie, but it's not set in a death camp. I don't know if that would make a difference to you or not. It's just such a good movie. go see it.

I know. I think SL is worse because it was set in the camps. I just wanted to know if she saw it. They're nothing a like at all.

Well...he's been on the lam in Europe for, like, I dunno 20 years or something. Anyway, he still made a great film, whether he's got a lot in common with R. Kelly or not.

Thank you. I try to maintain an air of brevity every now and then. It's good to break the monotony sometimes.
