Shoah

Dir. Claude Lanzmann (1985). The enormity of Claude Lanzmann’s mission and the devastating nature of his subject matter have tended to overshadow Shoah’s greatness as filmmaking. Not simply the most ambitious movie ever made about the extermination of the Jews, it’s a work that treats the issue of representation so scrupulously it might have been inspired by the Old Testament injunction against graven images—you watch in your mind's eye.
