hmmmm.....

Thanks for posting these, Doc!

More and more I'm sensing The Pianist as the biggest dark horse, not just because Polanski himself survived the Holocaust (his mother, though, died in the gas chamber), but because he has made a different kind of Holocaust movie.

Other Holocaust movies have suggested that survivors escaped due to heroism or some incredible act of sacrifice on someone's part...while Polanski (someone who arguably has the right to differ) argues that survivors were random and survived due to luck, people's sympathy, and being in the right place at the right time. He took great pains to make his main character an utterly ordinary person, whose unusual ability to play the piano wasn't itself enough to save him.
