Storyline

Considered to be one of the most respected film critics in the country, as evidenced by his work with Time magazine, Richard Schickel is widely known for writing, producing and directing a number of documentaries about Hollywood and its most important figures. As the producer of works such as "Woody Allen: A Life in Film" and "Scorsese on Scorsese", Schickel allows legendary filmmakers to explain their work. This time, Schickel has reunited with producer and director Steven Spielberg (welcome back from Mars if you haven't heard of him) for his most recent effort, "Spielberg on Spielberg", which premiered on Turner Classic Movies. The pair also collaborated on 2000's "Shooting War", a profile of World War II photographers. Already a living legend, the Oscar-winning director has chosen to share one of the most impressive American success stories: that of a young filmmaker who was brave enough to dare to dream and who would eventually give the world some of the most entertaining and ...

Spielberg on Spielberg (2007)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Richard Schickel's "documentary" on Spielberg is in the same vein as his 2002 film Woody Allen: A Life in Film and 2004's Scorsese on Scorsese. Like those two documentaries, this one here doesn't run nearly long enough but it's nice hearing from Spielberg on some of his lesser known films, although there's way too much time spent with a couple of the later day projects. The Jaws talk is kept very slim, which is good since there are countless documents on this subject. The one thing I was really letdown by is that, unlike the other two films I mentioned earlier, this one here doesn't really give Spielberg the time to discuss his favorite films as a child or the films that influenced him the most. Schickel's documentary Watch the Skies! actually has Spielberg talking about older films so with that in mind I wish some of that footage would have made it in here.
