    DescriptionSteven Spielberg (USA, b. 1946) was the boy wonder of the new Hollywood of the 1970s. Taking Orson Welles as his model, he made Duel aged only 25, following it up with a string of successes that brought him the adulation of the studios. As a fan of special effects, and entirely attuned to the shift towards younger film audiences, he took entertainment to new heights with films such as Jaws (1975), Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977), ET (1982) and Jurassic Park (1993). His more recent incursions into science fiction (AI, 2001; Minority Report, 2002; War of the Worlds, 2005) and historical films (Schindler's List, 1993; Saving Private Ryan, 1998; Munich, 2005) have brought him international critical recognition. He is also involved in production through his studio Dreamworks and is undoubtedly one of the most influential figures in contemporary film.

    Review quote
    'modern directors are briefly and brilliantly profiled in sharp prose and smart pictures in these movie master-classes for film buffs and beginners.' Saga 'short, beautifully illustrated essays on great directors' The Times 'exceptional value .. lively and accessible ... indispensable' Obessed with Film.com 'bargain price. Does an already saturated market need yet more auteur guides? On this evidence, yes. ... briskly paced, scalpel-sharp primers ...The collective quality is high, the tone scholarly but not intimidating. ... A triumph of layout as much as content, each book glows with gorgeous on- and off-screen archive photography... Magnifique.' Total Film
