  • An honest documentary about the master of entertainment. It's more personal than I thought it could be. [Full review in Spanish].

  • An absolute wonder to watch. It made me so unbelievably happy and reminded me why I love film.

  • The HBO documentary Spielberg is a lot like some of the legendary director's films: it's well-made, thoughtful, emotional and maybe a little long.

  • Lacy's doc offers some insights directly and might nudge you to others.

  • Overall, Spielberg is a satisfying and edifying look at a giant of cinema. Viewers will leave the film with a deeper appreciation not only of his exceptional craft, but also of the man himself...

    June 25, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • Why would anyone (especially a filmmaker of [Susan] Lacy's talents) bother making such a lengthy piece of surface level fan service, again telling us how hard Jaws was to film?

    This is more hagiography than documentary, but I don't care. Spielberg the man, and this film, deserve the adulation.

    The man himself, and many, many friends, take a look at cinema's most successful director and his babies, warts and all. Ok, ok, so maybe there's no warts, but nobody's perfect. Undeniably interesting while actively avoiding the whole pandering to the lowest common denominator critique. "Sentimental" might be the harshest criticism leveled at Hollywood's chief popcorn seller.
