A Tale Of Two Spielbergs

There is a director in our midst who operates beyond the confines of genre. His filmography is as vast as space, and as timeless as infinity. He is the middle ground between light and shadow, between history and fantasy, scarf and baseball cap. His blu-rays lay between the pit of your sci-fi collection, and the dusty shelf where you keep an unopened copy of Empire Of The Sun. That's the signpost up ahead, your next stop: the finale to Spielberg Month here on BOP! In this episode, we ponder how one of the greatest living directors can switch between such radically different modes of filmmaking, the surprising ways these tones overlap in his best films, and the subtle connections uniting the stories he's dedicated his life to telling. Plus, in a Box Office Pulp exclusive, we visit a parallel world and discover reviews of Spielberg films he never even made!
