The Spielberg Face

A wonderful article by Kevin B. Lee in FANDOR. Essential Viewing: The Spielberg Face

If there is one recurring image that defines the cinema of Steven Spielberg, it is The Spielberg Face. Eyes open, staring in wordless wonder in a moment where time stands still. But above all, a child-like surrender in the act of watching, both theirs and ours. It’s as if their total submission to what they are seeing mirrors our own.
