Legendary Director Steven Spielberg almost quit filmmaking after making the seminal film about the Holocaust, Schindler's List (1994). After Schindler won seven Oscars, it was years before Spielberg released another movie. (The Lost World: Jurassic Park arrived in 1997.) The director tells THR that he was "sad and isolated" after making Schindler and the "trauma of telling the story and forming the Shoah Foundation "left him without the desire to continue making feature films."
The story ends with Spielberg back in the director's chair, of course, having found the strength to persevere and pursue his art. Here are the 16 movies Spielberg has directed after his post-Schindler break:
- The Lost World: Jurassic Park
- Saving Private Ryan
- A.I. Artificial Intelligence
- Minority Report
- Catch Me If You Can
- The Terminal
- Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
- The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn
- Bridge of Spies
- The BFG
And three more coming up!
