So who's seen The Fabelmans and what's your reaction? Mine was "well made and engaging as far as it goes, but too long, flagrantly 'acted' and not, at the end of the day, hugely interesting on its own story terms. Knowing that it's Spielberg's saga is what holds us, of course, but what if it wasn't about Spielberg's formative years? How would it play if it was just a movie about a boomer kid who wanted to make movies from an early age? The only parts that really sing are the teenaged filmmaking moments in the Arizona desert, and the ending at Radford Studios."
