Audience Reviews for Amblin'


Steven Spielberg's first film, Amblin', is smart and criative, a portrait from a generation. Fresh.

Steve Spielberg's independent short film is a nice little start to his long and very successful career. It is sort of like a silent film, mostly music, with a few sound effects and laughs and stuff throughout. It is very late 60s in style, but it has that spark that would become Spielberg's style. It features two young hippies hitchhiking in the desert, as you watch their relationship begin, grow, and see them fall in love before it comes to an end. The film isn't much, but it lead to Spielberg getting a huge TV directing deal, which lead to jobs on "Night Gallery" directing the TV film "Duel", which was later released into theaters...all of which lead to "Jaws" and history...if I were Spielberg, I'd probably name my company Amblin' too.
