Steven Spielberg reveals the best film of his career according to him and he is not wrong

Steven Spielberg recently shared a film that he considers his best and one of his most praised.

At over 77 years old, Steven Spielberg remains one of the most prolific filmmakers in American cinema. From the massive Jurassic Park to the recent film The Fabelmans that marked a return to basics for the director, including Jaws or War of the Worlds, failures have been rare. Since his first official feature film for television Duel in 1971 – and made at the age of just 25 – the director has never stopped creating cross-generational classics. Well, obviously, these more than fifty years of career fades away from everyone (and even then we did not take into account his superb short and medium-length films).

The director is responsible for so many masterpieces that it is difficult to determine his best work. The most dreamy will say AND the Extra-Terrestrial (1982), others, more adventurous, will certainly opt for Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984), while fans of the series will not be able to avoid Saving Private Ryan (1998). But what about the director himself? As he awaits news about his movie about the policeman Bullitt with Bradley Cooper, the director managed to give an answer in the columns of the Hollywood Reporter.

The best of the best by Spielberg, according to Spielberg

In this interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Spielberg, in the company of Martin Scorsese and Liam Neeson, spoke at length about what he considers his best work: Schindler's List. For the 30th anniversary of the film, a gathering organized by the magazine was organized, where the whole process of the film's creation is reviewed, and here we can also hear the director's opinion:

“It's the best film I've ever made (when talking about Schindler's List, editor's note). I won't say it's the best I'll make in my life. But right now, it's the work I'm most proud of.”

The choice might seem almost too easy, and at the same time, Spielberg could easily list a dozen more obvious facts given the richness of his filmography. In any case, Schindler's List is still considered one of the director's greatest films. It is also the only one in his filmography to win the Oscar for Best Picture (1993) and the first for which he was awarded the Oscar for Best Director.

Telling the story of Oskar Schindler, the German industrialist who saved more than 1,200 Jews during World War II, the feature film is now considered one of the most interesting about the Holocaust. If you haven't seen Schindler's List yet, don't wait any longer. And if you want to immerse yourself in a film that reveals the other side of the subject, Zone of Interest is still in theaters.
