This retrospective celebrates some forty years of Steven Spielbergs boundless energy and his unwavering commitment to excellence in all areas of his work. The distinguished writer and critic Richard Schickel, himself a documentary filmmaker, applies his unique knowledge of every one of Spielbergs 27 major films to appraise the directors remarkably prolific and varied career. Featuring many first-person observations drawn from Schickels interviews with Spielberg, as well as a personal foreword by the director himself, this book presents an insiders perspective on Spielbergs legendary achievements. Impeccably designed and illustrated with over 400 superb images (including revealing behind-the-scenes photos from DreamWorks own archives), "Spielberg: A Retrospective" is the ultimate tribute to a moviemaking icon, and a book to treasure.
