Nobody knows how to tug on the heart string like this master manipulator, who basically invented the Hollywood summer blockbuster.
Singlehandedly responsible for the multiplex.
He defined the blockbuster (and all of its cross-marketing trappings), but moreover, Spielberg is a genius storyteller, who never loses sight of the humanity in his film’s gritty or fantastical settings.
