Fresh: A portrait of hell so shattering it's impossible to shake.
Fresh: We admire this film for its harsh objectivity and refusal to seek our tears, our sympathies.
Fresh: In going home to tell Szpilman's story Polanski seems reborn: once again he's become a filmmaker who matters.
Fresh: The Holocaust has been the subject of many films. The Pianist is one of the great ones.
