    3 of 5 by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News ]

  • draws on his three most important influences-John Ford, David Lean, and Walt Disney
    by Ben Sachs [Chicago Reader ]

  • boldly emotional, nakedly heartfelt, War Horse will leave only the stoniest hearts untouched
    by Richard Corliss [TIME Magazine ]

  • although neither film could be considered "triumphant," each shows flashes of the elements that have made Spielberg so respected
