Blu-ray Review: ‘Shoah’ Feels More Essential Than Ever


CHICAGO – The Criterion Collection has become not just a series of consumer-based releases but a historical assemblage of some of the most important films in history. Few films are more important, and therefore more appropriate for this collection, than the landmark “Shoah,” an exhaustive examination of the Holocaust from the people who were there. With fewer and fewer Holocaust survivors around to tell these stories, this amazing work feels more essential than ever. It has become more than mere film. It has become history in the way that it reflects such an important chapter in human existence.
