Ask Vulture: Which of This Fall’s Oscar-Baiting Holocaust Movies Is Right for You?


This fall presents a veritable smorgasbord of awards-baiting Nazi-related cinematic entertainment choices — no less than six in all. Yesterday saw the release of The Reader, which joins The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, already in theaters — and coming soon, just in time for Oscar consideration, are Adam Resurrected, Defiance, Good, and the hotly anticipated Valkyrie (starring Golden Globe nominee Tom Cruise!). But which to see? Since, in this economy, nobody wants to spend what little money he has on an unenjoyable Holocaust movie, Vulture has devised a fail-safe, flowchart-based guide to help determine which is right for you.
