‘Shoah’ Trailer Dares You To Watch a Nine Hour Holocaust Documentary

Celebrating its 25th anniversary (which makes it a great double-feature with Back to the Future), the epic documentary Shoah is getting a re-release in select theaters and will be coming to a round disc for home enjoyment soon as well.

The film is just over nine hours and has been called a masterpiece by many who have seen it. Thankfully, the trailer is not nine hours long. Also thankfully, it displays just a bit of the haunting beauty without delving too deeply into the depressingly murderous reality.

Would you watch it? It’s basically like watching 4 movies in a row. You can totally handle that. Seriously. The runtime is 550 minutes. That’s incredible. Who’s with me? [Apple]
