List: Top 3 Spielbergian Moments

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we reviewed Steven Spielberg’s latest film, Bridge of Spies. Spielberg has certainly been known for his unique fingerprint that you can certainly see in all of his films, making him one of the best filmmakers of all time. And depending on how you look at it, “Spielbergian” could mean several different things. Perhaps his sentimentality that he’s known for? Or his amazing action set pieces? Or perhaps it’s his world building that you love? Either way, there’s a lot to choose from and the conversation was quite interesting
