PostSubject: New Spielberg documentary to deubt this October on HBO   Wed Jul 12, 2017 4:45 pm

This seems promising if you're a fan:

"HBO will celebrate the legendary filmmaker with a feature length Steven Spielberg documentary.

HBO today announced that this fall will see the debut of Spielberg, a feature-length Steven Spielberg documentary that aims to pull back the curtain on his remarkable career more than ever before. The documentary examines Spielberg’s filmography in depth, revealing how his experiences fed his work and changed it over time. Directed and produced by award-winning documentarian Susan Lacy, this unprecedented chronicle debuts Saturday, October 7, exclusively on HBO. The Spielberg documentary will also be available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and affiliate portals.

Steven Spielberg has built an unrivaled catalogue of groundbreaking films over the course of his nearly 50-year career. Charting the evolution of this iconic figure, Lacy draws on nearly 30 hours of exclusive interviews with the director, who opens up about his bittersweet childhood and lifelong obsession with moviemaking, his precocious early work as a TV “wunderkind,” his rise to fame through an incredible string of blockbusters, his later forays into more serious dramatic films, and the personal and professional relationships he’s cultivated through the years.

The Spielberg documentary also includes insights from members of Spielberg’s family, as well as friends and colleagues, plus clips and behind-the-scenes footage from many of his milestone films, including Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark, ET: The Extra-Terrestrial, Jurassic Park, Schindler’s List, Saving Private Ryan, Bridge of Spies and many more.

Lacy interviewed more than 80 subjects for the film, ranging from A-list celebrities, to directors and producers, to industry insiders, including J.J. Abrams, Christian Bale, Drew Barrymore, Cate Blanchett, Francis Ford Coppola, Daniel Craig, Daniel Day-Lewis, Brian de Palma, Laura Dern, Leonardo DiCaprio, Richard Dreyfuss, Ralph Fiennes, Harrison Ford, David Geffen, Tom Hanks, Dustin Hoffman, Holly Hunter, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Ben Kingsley, Kathleen Kennedy, George Lucas, Liam Neeson, Martin Scorsese, Oprah Winfrey and Robert Zemeckis.

Susan Lacy is the creator and former executive producer of the celebrated WNET series American Masters, which is shown on PBS nationwide. She has won countless awards, including ten Primetime Emmys for Outstanding Documentary Series and 12 Peabody Awards. As executive producer of American Masters, Lacy produced a library of 250 films exploring the lives of America’s most enduring cultural icons.

An HBO Documentary Films presentation, the Spielberg documentary is directed and produced by Susan Lacy; produced by Emma Pildes and Jessica Levin; edited by Deborah Peretz."

I wonder if they will have anybody who will criticize him for being lazy since 2001.He let JP3 get run into the ground and did nothing and he did the same with Transformers ever since the first sequel. I just think that if Indiana Jones 5 underperforms, then he needs to retire.

Lazy?  What about Minority Report, Munich, and Lincoln? Even a misfire like AI is highly ambitious.

He's still one of the most prolific filmmakers out there. He's just moved away from Jurassic-ish films to other things. Personally, I prefer his output 1971-1998, but he's still Spielberg - just a different kind of Spielberg.

However, JP3 followed by a 14-year hiatus was horrible, though there's more than enough blame to go around - Kathleen Kennedy and Joe Johnston certainly didn't help.

It's true that his historical movies are great, but when it comes to blockbusters, he doesn't have it. The BFG bombed hard and many in Hollywood have questioned if he still has it because of that. I'd argue that Lincoln was a semi-anomaly since it took years to make. 4, I believe. Besides, if he really cared as much as you said, then why hasn't he done more to reel in Michael Bay via Transformers. Other then fire Megan Fox, he's done NOTHING for the movie franchise since the first movie, and he's the Executive Producer from the get-go.

His work as a producer has always been hit-or-miss. His work as a filmmaker is more consistent. Regarding Transformers, from what I can tell he's marginally involved, as he frequently is as an Executive Producer, IE, Back to the Future and Men in Black. I honestly don't think he was more or less involved with the first one VS the fifth. If he was not as involved, it's also worth noting that he may had had less control after his studio, DreamWorks, left Paramount which retained the Transformers rights. He's been more involved with the JP series, since he started that as a director.

Admittedly he hasn't had a tentpole hit as a director for quite some time, due to his interest running on other directions. Hopefully Ready Player One can buck that trend.

I still think that if IJ5 underperforms, then he's done as a blockbuster making director, least when it comes to non-historical movies. The only reason why he didn't get killed over Crystal Skull was because of how Lucas took most of arrows since people were starting to realize how underwhelming the Star Wars prequels were.

What was the last "summer blockbuster" type of film that audiences loved from him?

I loved War of the worlds but i know tons don't agree with that.

Should be an awesome documentary.

Saving Private Ryan came out during the summer, but it wasn't technically that kind of movie. I feel like Minority Report was pretty well received, but I guess the last one that people unilaterally loved was Jurassic Park.
