Steven Spielberg is not only one of our greatest living filmmakers, he’s one of the greatest filmmakers of all time. Spanning more than 40 years, Spielberg’s work boasts an extremely diverse array of stories, characters, and themes. He’s made whimsical fantasies aimed squarely at children (E.T., The Adventures Of Tintin), complex morality stories that most children likely won’t understand (Bridge Of Spies, Amistad), and graphically violent dramas that most children probably shouldn’t watch (Munich, Saving Private Ryan).
Because of his enduring mainstream popularity (not to mention the amount of blockbuster filmmakers whose careers he’s inspired), Spielberg doesn’t always receive his due, dismissed in some quarters as merely a “commercial” moviemaker who lacks the soul of a true artist. That’s nonsense. While he’s had his share of duds, the man has continued to challenge himself, tackling different genres and subject matters along the way.
With that, the folks over at Burger Fiction have made this nifty little supercut tracking Spielberg’s career from Jurassic Park to The BFG and everything in-between. Enjoy!
