I am deeply moved and touched and utterly disgusted at the same time. Don’t need to hear German (spoken or yelled) for at least twelve months. I’m also not sure whether the ‘I could have saved more’ scene is realistic, but oh well. Amazing that Spielberg made Jurassic Park the same year.
And the score… I already knew the theme, but was impressed all the same. Especially The Shower Scene stood out and captured the spirit of the moment perfectly.
