The Pianist
I was finally able to watch The Pianist starring Adrien Brody last night. Ever since the Oscars last March, I've been trying to find a copy of this so I could see for myself whether Adrien Brody and Roman Polanski deserved their awards for Best Actor and Best Director, respectively. And they did. Adrien Brody gave a spectacular performance as Wvalek Szpilman, a Polish pianist whose up-and-coming career was thwarted by the onset of World War II. I was awed by Roman Polanski's direction of this great masterpiece. He was able to show me and make me feel the emotions and what the Jews might have felt during World War II and how despicable the Germans were.

I don't like discrimination, prejudice, racism and the like. No, actually, I hate it. And I hated what Hitler and the Nazi soldiers did to the Jews back then. They had absolutely no right to do that. No right at all.

Please enlighten me. Why did Hitler hate Jews that much? When the war started in 1939, there were, according to the movie, around 400,000 Jews in Warsaw. By around 1943, there were only 60,000 left. These Nazi soldiers never gave them a chance and killed the Jews whenever these soldiers felt like it. How low and despicable can one get?

I hope this never happens again. EVER.
