Steven Spielberg has been voted the greatest director of all time by movie magazine readers, beating peers Alfred Hitchcock and Martin Scorsese.
Spielberg is only a craftsman, that’s all he is. He’s not a genius. He’s not a trendsetter. There isn’t one moment of any Spielberg film … that matches the least moment of a Kurosawa film. Kurosawa was a blinding genius of cinema. His vision was astonishing.
