The definitive illustrated retrospective on the Oscar-winning director of some of the most resonant and enduring films of all time. For more than five decades, Steven Spielberg has created inspiring, exciting and unforgettable movie magic. Jaws, E.T., the Indiana Jones series, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Schindler’s List, Saving Private Ryan and West Side Story are among the many favourites that have thrilled cinema audiences all over the world.

They are some of the highest-grossing, most captivating and enduring films of all time – contemporary classics that indelibly remain part of our lives. This timely retrospective celebrates more than fifty years of Steven Spielberg’s boundless energy and his unwavering commitment to excellence in all areas of his work. Drawing on his many first-person interviews, distinguished writer and critic Richard Schickel provides unique insight on every one of Spielberg’s thirty-four major movies.

John H. Foote, one of Canada’s best known film critics, updates the retrospective to the present day on Spielberg’s six latest films, from Bridge of Spies (2017) to The Fabelmans (2022). Including a personal foreword by the director himself, this is an insider’s perspective on Spielberg’s legendary achievements.

Impeccably designed and illustrated with over 450 superb images (including revealing behind-the-scenes photos from DreamWorks’ own archives), Spielberg: A Retrospective is the ultimate tribute to a moviemaking icon, and a book to treasure.
