Years from now - if not already - Steven Spielberg's name will be looked back upon in the books of film education as a man who shaped an entire era of blockbuster movies. Its only fitting, an ironic to a degree, that he decided to tackle the story of the man that shaped an entire country through a film is decidedly on the opposite end of the spectrum of those blockbuster efforts. And that is precisely why Steven Spielberg *is* Steven Spielberg. He's never been afraid to dabble in multiple genres, and he's almost always succeeded at it.
2011 may not have been a banner year for Mr. Spielberg, but it was still a year most filmmakers never get the chance to have. He released two films within one week of each, each directed and produced by him, and saw both go on to different degrees of success.The Adventures of Tintin solid international hit, while the less expensive War Horse performed respectably well and garnered Spielberg some of the usual Oscar attention.
