Trevor Hogg profiles the career of legendary Hollywood filmmaker Steven Spielberg in the fifth of a five part feature... read parts one, two, three and four.
“I admired [Stanley] Kubrick for the sheer variety of his films,” stated Steven Spielberg of the reclusive and revered American filmmaker. “Paths of Glory  was the best antiwar film ever made… Lolita  was, for me, the best picture about the social mores in America. It was way ahead of its time.” Spielberg had an opportunity to meet his cinematic idol. “I was happy to find that he was a nice guy, that he laughed and liked movies. He talked about the movies he liked, as opposed to so many of my other contemporaries who are haughty, supercilious about films, critical of them, and don’t give much credit to other people.” The two men collaborated on A.I.

Kathryn Bigelow's win at the DGA film awards puts her in line for an Oscar – a rare encouragement for female directors
History was made in the entertainment industry last night. You might not have noticed it amongst all the headlines about Beyoncé scooping the Grammy awards, or how Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were seen in public together (are they breaking up? Aren't they? Who cares?). But in a low-key ceremony in Los Angeles, Kathryn Bigelow became the first-ever female winner of the Directors' Guild of America (DGA) award for best direction in a feature film.
This is an important moment: in the DGA's 62-year-existence no female director has ever won this award. Congratulations to Bigelow aside, this win now points her firmly in the direction of an Academy award: almost every DGA win in this category results in the same achievement at the Oscars.
Why is this significant? »
