This course will explore the movies and talents of Steven Spielberg, beginning with the many influences on his earliest films and his development of the blockbuster movie. The focus of the class then switches to Spielberg’s career after the blockbusters, including his recent Oscar-nominated works. Special emphasis will be placed on Spielberg influences such as Hitchcock, Ford, Wyler, Kubrick, Curtiz, Lean, etc. The class will also explore the movies’ themes and their significance to popular culture as well as film’s relation to literature in narrative style, tone, effect of writer’s choices, language, subtext, imagery, etc.
