Critic Reviews for Spielberg
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.
Lacy consistently seduces us through its two and a half hour running time without ever slackening the energy or glossing over his shortcomings.
Audience Reviews for Spielberg
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.
