Watch it if you want to be a director...
30 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Look this isn't a horrible film. Someone who commented on this said it was the worst thing ever, and I think he's got to take a few steps backwards. I watched this and films like it to understand where the great directors started. Frankly their were many issues with this film, but it's a terrific learning tool. I myself just finished filming my own short film called Night Falls. I'm the same age that Spielberg was when he directed this film, 21. I have aspirations to one day become a great director but I find myself having many problems. So to watch this makes me feel like I'm not alone. Spielberg was once worried that he would never make it. He had to learn over the years and refine his skills.

In short watch this film if your an aspiring director.
