Interesting article in the New York Times about Steven Spielberg. Going on almost 40 years of filmmaking, the story focuses on the auteur's need to still make blockbusters, while also continuing to be seen as an innovator. Unlike other directors of his stature, he has received far less Academy Awards for his work, though he holds the title for best selling director of all time with $3.8 billion in domestic sales. In the coming months look for his name to be attached to even more highly-anticipated films, The Adventures of Tintin and War Horse. Personally, I look forward the most to Lincoln, likely coming out late 2012, starring Daniel Day-Lewis.
NY Times does a better job of explaining all of this than me, naturally.
