Steven Spielberg is one of the greatest film directors of all time. Why have his movies been so successful and of such high quality? Very simply, I believe Spielberg loves movies. When he reads a script he probably says to himself, "I would love to see this movie." From "E.T.," to "Close Encounters of the Third Kind," to "Schindler's List," Spielberg has created films that not only entertain but, in many cases, they educate.
