  1. I would not have thought of Schindler’s List as nostalgic or sentimental at first. I guess I think of “the good ol’ days” when I’m nostalgic. Anyway, a fun post and for the umpteenth time I am yelling at myself to watch “Cinema Paridiso”.

    • There are plenty of others that come to mind faster, but I like to use a more creative interpretation every once in a while. Funny to think that at one point Spielberg had the rights for Cape Fear and Scorsese had the rights for Shindler’s List.
