This list ranks the top films ever made by Steven Spielberg, arguably the most famous and celebrated of all American filmmakers. Spielberg won his first Oscar for directing in 1993 for his Holocaust drama Schindler’s List, and took the prize again five years later for the WWII film Saving Private Ryan (best remembered for its immersive opening D-Day sequence). But he had already been heralded in the ’70s and ’80s as one of Hollywood’s most important and successful directors.
