  • 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.

  • Lacy has mined everything, it seems, except perhaps too little naysaying.

  • This is a documentary that could and should be shown in film schools.

    Oct 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.

    Oct 9, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Lacy consistently seduces us through its two and a half hour running time without ever slackening the energy or glossing over his shortcomings.

    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.
    Kevin M. W Super Reviewer
