Shamefully Neglected Source of Spielberg's "List"
28 December 2004 | by (Hollywood) – See all my reviews

On the occasion of the Smithsonian's inclusion of Stephen Spielberg's "Schindler's List" to its film registry, I must second Titus Levy, who has pointed out, that this documentary is obviously the inspiration for the lionized "List".

I saw "Schindler, The Documentary" back in the early 80s, when it was made. I was so impressed that I recorded it. After watching it again, recently, I can still say, that this is a remarkable documentary, which has been shamefully neglected.

Beginning with a lovely string trio played by survivors, The Documentary relies on archival footage and commentaries by the actual people who owe their lives to Schindler. Since The Documentary lets the story tell itself, the ambiguity of Schindler's motives has not been lost; however, just as Spielberg's "List" would do later, it concludes that what Schindler accomplished makes cavils about his motives seem churlish indeed.

"Schindler, the Documentary" deserves a far greater audience and acclaim than it has received.
