I was exposed to this today article today which highlights Steven Spielberg’s obsession in his films; namely the repairing (seen on many levels) of the fractured family.
So here is the IMDB listing of all Spielberg’s released movies…Let’s see if it’s true.
War of the Worlds
Catch Me If You Can
Artificial Intelligence: AI
Saving Private Ryan
The Lost World:
Empire of the Sun
The Color Purple
Twilight Zone: The Movie (segment 2)
E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial
Raiders of the Lost
Close Encounters of the Third Kinds
The Sugarland Express
Yeah, I’m going to have to agree with this assessment. There is one or two that I’m trying to remember this particular theme being played out in, and strangely enough a few I just haven’t seen (how sad), but yeah it’s true.
What about you? Can you see the theme of “repairing fractured families”? Any movies you don’t see it in?
