Over his long and legendary career, Academy Award-winning filmmaker Steven Spielberg has tackled primeval fears and imaginative fantasy, captured the magic of childhood wonderment and found the human side of stories across almost all genres: literary adaptations, action-adventure, historical films and more. All of that makes whittling down his filmography to only his best nearly impossible, but these 1o movies—all of them found in 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die—might be his finest.
Sculptor Nick Van Woert seems to have more of sense of humor than most these days. His personal website displays his work using great animated .gifs that show his normally stationary work in motion. It’s just as cheeky as some of the sculptures themselves, like “Untitled,” a fiberglass bust that’s clearly Abraham Lincoln, only with chunks of his head, face and neck hacked off and attached to a separate steel form. The two pieces reside side-by-side as gruesome mirror images. It’s a bit of fun and a bit grisly too, what with the chopped pieces revealing bright bits of polyurethane plastic designed to resemble raw flesh.
