Ever noticed that every Steven Spielberg movie tends to have at least one shot of a camera slowly zooming into someone's face, as they look at something with equal parts wonder and amazement? Fandor did, and made a nearly 10 minute supercut of all the times this has happened in a Spielberg movie in the last 30 years.
After watching this video, it's evident that the "Spielberg Face" has been a key ingredient to the director's massive success throughout his career. This year, we'll hopefully get to see the first equestrian Spielberg Face in "War Horse."
So is the "Spielberg face" an expert filmmaking technique, or just a gimmick? You be the judge.
