Tonight, HBO will premiere its new documentary, Spielberg, at 9pm ET/PT.
Over 30 hours worth of interviews have been condensed to create the documentary, which runs 2 hrs 27 minutes.
The film premiered on Thursday night at New York Film Festival, and highlights Spielberg’s childhood and what went into creating some of his most iconic films. Variety writes, “It’s full of rare home-movie footage that captures Spielberg on the set, and his emergence from the directorial rat pack of the New Hollywood, more intimately than I’ve ever seen those things portrayed.”
An interesting portion of the film comes when Spielberg discusses his on-set nerves. He explains that he gets nervous whenever he goes to film a new scene, and only when he’s on the verge of panic does he have his best ideas.
A creative and personal delve into the inner workings of a man universally considered one of the founding pioneers of the New Hollywood Area, and one of the most popular directors and producers in history,
