Subject: RE: BS: Films I just cannot watch easily!!
I read the book of Schindler's List and couldn't face seeing the film. that whole episode of history is just so incomprehensible. You can only feel sorry for the people caught up in it. So far into territory that you don't really want to think human beings venture into.

I can't see that the protagonists of the Jesse James story were any worse than The Goodfellas. Both stories were at base about people who had been forced to embrace a set of values, because of decisions thay had made about how they wanted to live. Its easy to identify with people in both films - they wanted to be somebody different from the run of the mill members of society.
