All Critics (37) | Top Critics (22) | Fresh (34) | Rotten (3)

  • 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.

  • Though Spielberg could do with a sequel, for now it's a useful retrospective of a filmmaker whose influence on cinema cannot be overstated.

    October 10, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Lacy has mined everything, it seems, except perhaps too little naysaying.

    October 9, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • This is a documentary that could and should be shown in film schools.

    October 9, 2017 | Full Review…
  • ... 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.

    October 9, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Ehat do its 145 minutes (an appropriately Spielberg-ian chunk of time) really tell us about Steven Spielberg, aside from the fact that the man has made a lot of movies? Not much.

Audience Reviews for Spielberg

    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.
