The Films of Steven Spielberg
No one today can doubt Steven Spielberg's consummate craftsmanship and popular appeal. With Schindler's List, he at last received the critical acclaim that had once eluded him. That film won Academy Awards for Best Picture and for Best Director.
In this pictorial study, Douglas Brode puts the director's career in focus, examining his first feature, The Sugarland Express, made more than twenty-five years ago, through the blockbusters Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark, E.T., and Jurassic Park. Although the director's movies have been diverse, the author notes the serious themes that recur throughout his work and reveals the human heart within the special effects and Hollywood glitz. This revised edition includes Amistad and Lost World.
