    Steven Spielberg: Filmmaker Extraordinare

    Now that Steven Spielberg’s newly released Lincoln film is enjoying its top box office status, all eyes are on Daniel Day-Lewis, whose portrayal of The Emancipator has convinced many of his chameleon-like acting talents. Yet despite that transformation, there is one thing I am even more curious to see. Ever since I saw my first Spielberg film, Jurassic Park, at the age of five, I’ve associated a very grand and dare I say, epic feeling to his work (emotions that arguably err on the side of cheesy). So as I ponder whether Lincoln will bark up the same tree or tread new territory, let’s take a look back at the director’s career as a storyteller and why it is he is so undoubtedly Spielbergian.
