I am presenting this five star review because I borrowed the book a bunch of times from a library with the intent to study shark anatomy and I learned a great deal from the book.
The book became my first introduction to the world of shark diving (please note I am not a diver at present nor have taken any course in diving). If the author was as good at writing emails as he is at producing truly decent best selling films free of the usual political mumbo jumbo then perhaps more written works about his life would be appreciated. What saddens me is that far more trashy movie cameras are being sold on the market now than in 1996 when this book was being written and what saddens me even more is that most of them are digital cameras. We have entered a new era of rebirth of the analogue film which shall eventually see a return of full feature length films.
Summary: The Films of Steven Spielberg is an apolitical analysis of major feature length productions such as Jaws and Jurassic Park. It does not contain any zionist propaganda or any other political agenda but tries to present the reader with as much factual material as possible. Its message was that we should be more careful with our cameras than we were in the 1990s when we thought that the cameras of the future were going to be the better. Its other message is that without belief in what you are doing you cannot be a decent film producer. This was as true for Eisenstein as it was for the film producers described in this book. The film is the ocean and the director and studio are the wave.Read more ›
