STEVEN SPIELBERG

(b. 1946) (1959(1974-____))

===========================================================================

Because Steven Spielberg has a fascinating story in terms of his rise from a kid making super 8mm films, to his gaining attention in Phoenix as a 16 year old with a feature film at the local theatre, to his early years with Universal directing TV shows, then TV movies, and finally reaching legendary superstardom with some of the biggest grossing feature films in history - I am organizing Spielberg's filmography in a more chronological order and breaking his career down into distinct phases/film types.

NOTE 2: (from Wikipedia) Kevin Smith announced at the Sundance premiere of Red State on January 23, 2011 that 2013's "Hit Somebody" will be the last movie he ever directs, and that he will continue to tell stories in other media. Smith further explained his retirement from directing, citing distribution politics, and the manner in which making films like Zack and Miri "adulterated" his own identity as a filmmaker, saying, "I don't have the same passion for it I used to. I don't have any stories left to tell." Smith further emphasized that he sees himself as a writer rather than a director, and that Harvey Weinstein developed his career as a celebrity auteur because "my films were never strong enough to stand up on their own."

OTHER DIRECTORS

===========================================================================

Below is a list of other CURRENT Directors/Filmmakers which I am not officially citing as "Favorites", but who have directed (& perhaps screenwritten) favorite films of mine, are directors/filmmakers I remain very curious about, and whose films I plan to continue seeking out and watching. These directors/filmmakers are right at the threshold of being "Favorites", and might become one after watching just another film or two which I find I love.

 

1. Paul Thomas Anderson
2. Darren Aronofsky
3. Warren Beatty (last=1998)
4. Luc Besson
5. Kathryn Bigelow
6. Guillermo del Toro
7. Joe Johnston
8. Charlie Kaufman
9. Richard Kelly
10. John Landis
11. David Lynch
12. Alan Parker (last=2003)
13. Wolfgang Petersen (last=2006)
14. Harold Ramis
15. Julian Schnabel
16. Jon Turteltaub
17. Tom Tykwer
18. Wim Wenders
19. Edgar Wright

Here are other CURRENT Directors/Filmmakers which have made films I enjoyed. While not technically being on the threshold of being Favorites of mine, they have either made films I enjoyed, or are so historically significant that it would be foolish to dismiss them too casually. I am reserving judgement until I see more films of theirs, although I won't necessarily be actively seeking out titles of theirs to watch, but rather will simply note their directing/screenwriting credits as I continue to watch great films as included on great films lists.

 

20. Albert Brooks (last=2005)
21. Mel Brooks (last=1995)
22. Tim Burton
23. James Cameron
24. Sofia Coppola
25. Richard Curtis
26. Jonathan Demme
27. Robert Duvall (last=2002)
28. Stephen Frears
29. Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
30. Jake Kasdan
31. Jon Kasdan
32. Ang Lee
33. Spike Lee
34. Penny Marshall
35. Mike Nichols
36. Alex Proyas
37. Ivan Reitman
38. Steven Soderbergh
39. Gus Van Sant
