Movie Matters #34 - Steven Spielberg Special

Wednesday, 7 October, 2015

Movie Matters Podcast

Love him or loathe him, Steven Spielberg is arguably the most influential filmmaker working today. Who else commands such clout in Tinseltown, and what other director's very name serves as a guaranteed box office draw, even among non-cinephiles? We're proud to finally turn our attention to this most esteemed of filmmakers, subjecting three of what are arguably his most unfairly overlooked films of the previous decade to the traditional Movie Matters treatment: MINORITY REPORT and CATCH ME IF YOU CAN, both from 2002, and 2005's MUNICH.

Joining regular hosts Lee Howard and Michael Mackenzie is Focus on Film co-host Daniel Sardella, along with a specially recorded appreciation of DUEL by Black Hole Cinema's Tony Black.

The music in this episode is sampled from RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, MINORITY REPORT, CATCH ME IF YOU CAN, MUNICH, JAWS and E.T. THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL, all composed by John Williams.
