“It’s nice to feel like this, to have a sense of purpose. I think storytelling has always been my through-line. Linnea was talking about how language itself isn’t a home. It's what you make of language that makes language a home.”

Spielberg’s lively, disjointed, semi-autobiographical odyssey: “The Fabelmans” review

“However, in truth, the movie might not actually be about much at all. Perhaps it was simply the aging Spielberg’s nostalgic attempt to preserve the story of his family for posterity in the wake of his parents’ recent passing.”

Hello, my name is...

The Cause: the days are long, but the months are short

“I love the cause. Yet I can’t help but feel that loving the cause means I have little space left for loving streaky sunsets, or the wind whipping through my hair, or autumn fading to winter.”
