How is Schindler's List outside of Spielberg's comfort zone?

I think it's when a director makes a movie that's very different from their other movies and it ends up being good. I chose Red Eye for Wes Craven because it's an action thriller instead of his typical horror like Elm Street, Scream, etc. Schindler's List isn't the best example since Spielberg had attempted serious drama before with Empire of the Sun and Always (neither were that successful, but you get the idea).

Yeh, need to be more clear with your lists. Otherwise people just interpret them differently and we have 13 movies that make no sense to group together.

How is it ambiguous? Just google the definition and you get this:
the concluding passage of a piece or movement, typically forming an addition to the basic structure.

Clearly in KKKlansman's case, it's the documentary footage Lee adds to the main fictional storyline. It's kinda like a cold open but closing the action. Trying to think of more good examples but I'm sure we can get 13 between all of us.

Well, concerning films, the coda is more or less the concluding passage. It's not always the same as the ending though, it's when the final passage seems to form an addition to the basic structure or the normal flow of the film. With BlacKkKlansman, I'm referring to how it ends with
footage of the Unite the Right rally.
EDIT: MrCarmady beat me to this post.

My interpretation of coda as it applies to film is that it's the concluding scene(s) in a film that are distinctly different in tone, style, setting, etc. It brings the entire narrative to conclusion in away that wouldn't be possible using the same preceding structure.

13 films with a memorable coda

1. BlacKkKlansman
2. Arrival
3. The Return of the King
4. Taste of Cherry
5. The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters

7. Carrie
8. Fart: The Movie
9. Waltz With Bashir

13 news stories that would make great movies

1. Monkey Busters - https://www.huffpost.com/entry/japan-mo ... 66b2b7c9d0
2. The Rita Crundwell fraud scandal - https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-21465390
3. Poland accidentally invades Czech Republic https://www.npr.org/2020/06/13/87660440 ... erstanding
4. Jeffery Epstein - starring Meryl Streep as Hilary Clinton. But Hollywood would not want this. Implicate a lot of their own in pedo matters.
5. America Devolves Into Right-Wing Autocracy With Sociopathic Orange Dictator, Terrifies World
6. The parrot who sings like Beyonce - =https://www.cnn.com/videos/entertainme ... an-bdk.cnn
7. Womans ass fuses to toilet seat - https://www.neatorama.com/2008/03/14/wo ... two-years/
8. Fedex air crew have to perform emergency landing and fight off man trying to crash the plane so family can get his life insurance - https://www.commercialappeal.com/story/ ... 286453002/
9. North Korean defector's harrowing tale of escaping communist regime - https://nypost.com/2020/09/03/north-kor ... ue-regime/
10. Gigantic Russian named Dumpling dominates professional slapping contest https://allthatsinteresting.com/funny-n ... ies-2019/4
11. Not a specific news story but several of them: peace time skirmishes between the US armed forces vs Russia and China. We only get military movies when shit has hit the fan. I would love to see a film follow how peace time patrols and and the petty yet dangerous squabbles that arise. I imagine there would sooo much politically incorrect material here.

Not really an X-Men fan and I could just as easily have picked The New Mutants. But how many stakes through the heart can one franchise take?
