With “The Fabelmans” winning the Golden Globe, find out where to stream Spielberg movies

One of the films that should be among the most cited in the upcoming Hollywood awards season, “The Fabelmans” is inspired by the childhood of Steven Spielberg, one of the most celebrated directors of American cinema.

To round out the experience, the list below highlights ten films from the 76-year-old director, including the blockbusters ‘ET’ and ‘Jurassic Park’ and the award-winning ‘Schindler’s List’.

Unfortunately, not all of the director’s productions are part of streaming catalogues, such as “Raiders of the Lost Ark” or “Munich”, which can only be rented.

Shark (1975)

It was with this film that Steven Spielberg began to gain fame as the golden boy of Hollywood. Legend has it that the film’s budget was recouped in full only on its first opening weekend. In the story, a small coastal town that thrives on tourism is threatened by several attacks by a great white shark. While the mayor tries to cover up the case, a sheriff calls on the experts to hunt down the bug.

A householder believes he has seen a UFO and becomes obsessed with the idea, even leaving his family in the background. He learns that other people have had the same experience and that the government is also investigating the case. Years after the film, Spielberg even claimed that ultimately he would change the fate of the main character (no spoilers).
