What Steven Spielberg's science fiction tells us about America
Quote
"In Spielberg's movies, especially those sci-fi and fantasy films where history is not there to trammel his imagination or expose his wayward touch, we find the pure madness of modern America: the delusions, the illusions, the confounded dream."

I can't see Spielberg quite in these terms.  It's about the suspension of disbelief and delight in the imaginary made real for a brief moment.  Maybe it's all the same thing,

The author sounds as if he read Something Wicked This Way Comes by Bradbury right before and couldn't get it out of his head while reviewing Spielberg.
