Director Steven Spielberg is among the most revered filmmakers in Hollywood, and has fan following around the world. He has directed some of the biggest blockbusters (Jaws, Jurassic Park, and many more) in the history of Hollywood cinema.
However, his 1993 Holocaust film “Schindler’s List” (won seven Oscars in 1994 – including Best Picture and Best Director) was the most emotionally draining film he had ever done.
Although the movie cemented his legendary status, the movie almost sent him into depression, with no desire to do more films. He would wonder if “Schindler’s List” would be the last movie of his career.

“I’ve never been depressed. I was sad and isolated, and as well-received and successful as that movie was, I think it was the trauma of telling the story and forming the Shoah Foundation.”
However, its difficult for a hugely talented filmmaker like Spielberg to quit the game.
In 1997, the idea of directing a sequel to one of his most commercially successful films ‘Jurassic Park’ hit him one day like a thunderbolt, and he returned to the movie industry with the release of “The Lost World: Jurassic Park.”
