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.
Though Spielberg could do with a sequel, for now it's a useful retrospective of a filmmaker whose influence on cinema cannot be overstated.
Lacy has mined everything, it seems, except perhaps too little naysaying.
This is a documentary that could and should be shown in film schools.
... it's a testimony to Spielberg's career that a two-and-a-half-hour documentary on his life and work could both feel too long in some places and yet oddly inadequate in others.
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.
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...
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?
Just because it's a familiar story, though, doesn't mean it won't hold you in the palm of its hand as it guides you through the filmography of the quintessential American filmmaker.
With an extraordinary selection of clips, Lacy illustrates the most obvious father and son theme from his oeuvre...80+ stars give directorial anecdotes from each film.
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.
