Oskar Schindler is a vainglorious and greedy German businessman who becomes an unlikely humanitarian amid the barbaric German Nazi reign when he feels compelled to turn his factory into a refuge for Jews.

Spielberg opted to make Jurassic Park (1993) before this film in terms of his projects for 1993. It was even written into his contract, because had he made this film first, he would have been too drained to film Jurassic Park (1993). See more »

The theatrical version juxtaposed images from the film of the actors portraying certain identified "Schindler Jews" as each actual person placed a stone on Schindler's grave. The VHS version does not use this device, showing only the actual persons, credited by name. See more »
I read on a website that is a "polemic" polemic means it is bad propaganda and lies to us. In the age of President rump we will fight back the women of freedom and tradition and power. So yes Children's list is another worthless Hollywood cash-in that runs at snails pace to try to brainwash us.
Die hard Israel fans will obviously find enjoyment in this film - entering the Hollywood universe again, the stunning visuals, and soundtrack... But look closely at the film itself and there is not a lot on offer.
It starts out with this awfully paced run of throwaway scenes to showcase the main bad guy characters in the story - they go far to quick to feel any emotional connection with them later on in the film.
