So I missed the recent Spielbery documentary that aired on TCM and I have been hoping someone will post it on YouTube someday. In the meantime, I found this 57 minute film about Spielberg and his work, apparently from a British TV program called "The Culture Show".
For being such a prolific and influential filmmaker, Mr. Spielberg rarely talks much about his process. He never does commentaries on his DVDs and rarely gives interviews, so it was really a treat to find this and hear him talk about his films, even though the show is only an hour and he doesn't have the time to discuss each film in depth.
Especially interesting is hearing George Lucas talk about the weaknesses of Spielberg's film "1941" and saying that Steven had gotten too successful and had no limitations placed on him and that lead to Steven being out of control without anyone to reign him in (which I would say is probably the case with Lucas and the newest Star Wars movies, but that's just my opinion). Also, Lucas calls Spielberg's films a little "too saccharine" for his tastes. It's rare to see such honest appraisals from Hollywood filmmakers of their peers, that's for sure.
