10.08.17Internet A 150-minute documentary on Steven Spielberg and his films. They got an exhaustive list of interviews to pad out the love letter, went into his childhood and personal life enough to contextualize the themes in his work, but mostly it was like an overlong AFI tribute video to the guy. I mean, do we really need to know that his films are successful and popular? I dunno... the whole thing seemed pretty unnecessary to me, but it's weird because I like most of his movies and am typically a sucker for these docs. I think maybe it's the running time that got to me? But I should like that too, since it affords the time to talk about some of his films that don't usually get talked about like The Color Purple and Empire of the Sun. So I'm not sure why I didn't like this more...
