Steven Spielberg Filmography

Unlike Woody Allen, you know, I wanted to become a member of the country club,” the director-mogul Steven Spielberg once said. Spielberg is now certainly a member of the club; arguably, he is the club. Like Orson Welles, he was a wunderkind; like Hitchcock, he’s been accused of shameless audience manipulation, and like Frank Capra, of gushing sentimentality; and like Walt Disney, he has built a multimedia empire. He might well be the most commercially successful director (and executive producer) of all time.Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial; more than movie titles, these are pop-cultural touchstones.

The latter part ofhis career has seen him tackling more mature themes, sometimes bumpily (as in The Color Purple) and othertimes to great critical acclaim and honors at the Oscars (Schindler’s List). A.I. Artificial Intelligence, which was conceived by Stanley Kubrick, blended clinical detachment with lost-child bathos, to a mixed reception. His latest, Minority Report, Spielberg has said, is a cynical but “gourmet popcorn movie.”

Spielberg’s influence is everywhere: in TV animation, video games, amusement park rides, and prime-time TV (ER, Band of Brothers). He’s often had a hand in others’ megahits (Men in Black), and ini994he became a partner in a new entertainment giant, DreamWorks SKG. AndyWebster.
