Even Steven Spielberg has to admit that one of his films is “pretty perfect”.
The director has made 34 films since 1971, many of which are considered classics. These include Jaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Raiders of the Lost Ark.
However, Spielberg says that he finds it tought to re-watch his movies – but there’s one he has revisisted that he knows is undeniably excellent.
“I don’t look a lot at my movies after I’ve made them,” he told The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, adding: “I don’t look back too often but every once in a whikle I’ll see a movie with my kids.”
He explained that he wanted to “comfort my kids when they watched ET for the first time”, adding: “I don’t want them to see ET without dad sitting there – especially with the scary parts at the beginning.”
Whereas Spielberg might otherwise find the experience of rewatching one of his films a gruelling one, he actually enjoys it when he watches back the 1982 film, fully titled ET: The Extra-Terrestrial.
“Sometimes I see things that I had intended to do that i didn’t do, and sometimes I see things that would have been a better idea than what I’m now seeing all these years later – but for the most part, ET is a pretty perfect movie,” he said.
He continued: “It’s one of the few movies I’ve made that I can actually look back at again and again.”
The filmmaker revealed he’s made “only a handful of movies I can watch more than once”.
“I’ve made like 34 films and – I’m not gonna name which ones they are beyond ET – there’s about five or six films that I can watch again, but I don’t usually do that.”ORDER A COPY OF ROB’S NEW BEST SELLING BOOK!
