With four-plus decades in the game, it can be easy to forget not just the influence of Steven Spielberg, but how beloved and respected he is by his peers. The filmmaker is not only prolific, he maintains a consistent, high level of craft, and thus it’s not a surprise that when it came time to screen his latest movie “Bridge Of Spies,” for members of the Director’s Guild of America, two heavyweight members came out in support.
Martin Scorsese and Paul Thomas Anderson — in New York and Los Angeles, respectively — moderated talks with Spielberg about his spy drama earlier this month. And needless to say, it’s great stuff. Both filmmakers gush about “Bridge Of Spies,” impressed by Spielberg’s picture, and dive into the genesis of the film, the making of the movie, and much more.
Ninety minutes with these filmmaking titans should be enough to get you clicking. Watch the Spielberg and Scorsese talk below, and the chat with Anderson over at the DGA site. “Bridge Of Spies” is now playing.
