The Critical Context . The ‘Steven Spielberg’ responsible for them is, except when the context indicates otherwise, a critical construct, inferred from the texts. While Spielberg’s representations of race and gender have caused real offence – with varying degrees of justification – in the Indiana Jones series, The Color Purple, Schindler’s List and Amistad, much of the more general ideological criticism appears over-simplistic in light of psychoanalytic theory concerned with subjectivity and pleasure.

Cinema's most successful director is a commercial and cultural force demanding serious consideration. Not just triumphant marketing, this international popularity is partly a function of the movies themselves. Polarised critical attitudes largely overlook this, and evidence either unquestioning adulation or vilificationoften vitriolicfor epitomising contemporary Hollywood. Detailed textual analyses reveal that alongside conventional commercial appeal, Spielberg's movies function consistently as a self-reflexive commentary on cinema. Rather than straightforwardly consumed realism or fantasy, they invite divergent readings and self-conscious spectatorship which contradict assumptions about their ideological tendencies. Exercising powerful emotional appeal, their ambiguities are profitably advantageous in maximising audiences and generating media attention.

Horribly written. One almost wonders if a professional editor even looked at the manuscript before the Director's Cut/Wallflower published it. There's barely a sentence in this 390-page monster that isn't crammed with giant words (which in of itself requires slower reading), which make the text unnecessarily complicated. Furthermore, the sentence structure remains bizarre.

An example from page 113: "'The Color Purple' was unsuccessfully nominated for 11 categories - excluding, unprecedentedly, Best Director, which normally accompanies Best Film".... WHAT???? Ok, not only is that awkwardly written, it's also arguably misleading.

My other issue with this book (as well as a handful of other Spielberg works) is that so much of the text is devoted to what's wrong with the films. However this book takes the cake for trashing Spielberg's movies without really giving a good retort to accusations. I sincerely wonder if Mr. Morris even likes Steven Spielberg's films as he spends a good chunk of time bashing them, particularly the closing. He pulls from another critic highlighting a flaw in "E.T.", stating that audiences won't get the film because of the references to "Star Wars". Ummmm, no. I saw "E.T." as a young child, long before I knew, let alone saw "Star Wars". Clearly the academic know-it-all validated the argument that being super intellectual about films actually makes for horrible argument.

In all fairness, the chapters on "Schindler's List" and "Catch Me If You Can" were decent, and I pulled a quote for my own Spielberg writings. I have no doubt that Mr. Morris is probably engaging to speak to on the subject matter - but this book is a super let down.

I purchased this as a textbook for a film class on Steven Spielberg. While it's very comprehensive on his films, it's difficult to read. I would call this a "scholarly" tome. Some of the author's theories are a bit convoluted.

If you are a fan of Steven Spielberg and are interested in his life story, then this book is 100% for you. Not only do you learn more about his personal life, but you also get to explore on how he became a famous director and read about all of the films he has created throughout his career. The book was in great condition and was delivered very quickly, it is deffenitly worth purchasing if you are interested in film.

It's an okay book. As another reviewer pointed out, it's heavy on academic jargon, which can make it quite tedious to read. It covers the films of Steven Spielberg, starting with the director's made-for-TV movie "Duel", and ending with the 2005 theatrical release "Munich". There is a lot you will find interesting on each film, but I'm not sure everything in here is what you would expect or want from a book covering much of the director's filmography.
