Director: Steven Spielberg
Starring: Roy Schneider, Robert Shaw, Richard Dreyfuss, and an extremely angry shark.
The original summer blockbuster, Jaws is a pathbreaking and trendsetting film which caused a massive paradigm shift in cinema, and also announced Steven Spielberg to the world.
Jaws follows a police chief, a professional shark hunter and a marine biologist who head out to open sea to kill a great white shark that has been terrorising the waters of the local tourist town. The film is exemplary of Steven Spielberg’s masterful storytelling. The story moves a tantalising and thrilling pace, and will definitely keep you hooked. The shark is unseen for most of the film, making a physical appearance only at the end, with Spielberg relying on camera effects and an Academy Award-winning background score to create the shark’s presence.
Jaws is fantastic , visually stunning, and would convince you to never venture out into the sea again.It was the highest-grossing film of all time until Star Wars,and is one of the most culturally significant films of all time.
