Top Customer Reviews
If anything else, the book is worth purchasing for the photos. The photos are wonderful to look at, some that have never been available in public before, while others range from sentiment from genuinely funny to haunting to awe-inspiring. But while these photos are fabulous to view, the real strength in "A Retrospective" is Spielberg himself, who is shown to be an insightful, passionate filmmaker not afraid to admit his flaws and defend himself and the work he takes great pride in. Spielberg is not the kind of person to publicly respond to criticisms or needless bashing a la Tarantino, but here he reveals his justifications for the so-called critiques labeled at his work. For example, although he was chided for the cemetery sequences that book-ended "Saving Private Ryan", Spielberg defended these sequences by saying that he did them for the veteran soldiers, that he was honoring their fathers and grandfathers who served in the deadliest war in mankind history.Read more ›
If you're at all interested in movies and Steven Spielberg in particular, this book is well worth buying.
