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

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.

OK, so I end­ed up being con­flict­ed with “How do you like your Nazis?”, but end­ed up at The Read­er either way. I leave it as an exer­cise to my read­ers how I got there. :) (I already had it in my Net­flix queue; com­pelling sto­ry­line and cast… and come on, it’s Kate Winslet!)
