411) Spielberg: Cinema and Sentiment

Few directors in the history of American film have been as adept at creating emotionally moving performances as Steven Spielberg.  Whether working from the romantic prism of fantasy or adventures, (E.T., Artificial Intelligence, Indiana Jones, etc.), or through gritty, realistic storylines (Schindler’s List, Cinderella Man, Lincoln, etc.), his films evoke powerful and thought-provoking responses from his audiences.  This course will explore his sensibility and the tools he employs to achieve these results.
