Gold Derby has tracked down six of Spielberg’s directorial achievements that are currently streaming for free on Netflix. So sit back, relax and start binging! Click through our photo gallery above to see our rankings of all six of Spielberg’s movies on Netflix as of October 2018.
Spielberg is easily the most popular director in the film industry, having directed 30 movies and taken home three Oscars: for producing and directing “Schindler’s List” (1993) and for directing “Saving Private Ryan” (1998). He also scored additional directing noms for “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” (1977), “Raiders of the Lost Ark” (1981), “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial” (1982), “Munich” (2005) and “Lincoln” (2012).
In recent years Spielberg has kept busy directing video game movie “Ready Player One” (2018), political biopic “The Post” (2017), computer animated “The BFG” (2016) and period piece “Bridge of Spies” (2015). Notably, “Bridge of Spies” was only Spielberg’s second film to take home an Oscar for acting; Mark Rylance won Best Supporting Actor three years after “Lincoln” star Daniel Day-Lewis first won Best Actor.
Up next for Spielberg are a trio of films that are sure to take the box office by storm: a remake of the musical “West Side Story,” “The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara” about a young Jewish boy raised to be Catholic, and the next movie in the “Indiana Jones” franchise. Will any of these future projects bring Spielberg Oscar #4?
