So do we criticise Enemy of stealing from Schindler? Or do we

I do agree with you that the theme does sound a lot like Schindler's List(especially considering that is what I am now listening to as I write). However, I have been hearing many things lately that seem to use that theme. Although the other movie I've heard it in continues to evade my memory, one that does come to mind recently is the little slice played during ads related to Harry Potter. Although it is a little more difficult recognizing it there since it is re-engineered to sound more mystical.
