59 war of the worlds (spielberg, 2005)

I'm 32 and I still have an ironclad confidence in Spielberg. I guess he's the auteur I've known and supported the longest -- after Kubrick. (Cue memory flashes watching 2001 with me da innumerable years ago.) He is like Ford, in that you take the ideological/sentimental/eccentric with the matchless narrative dexterity, fluid and expressive camerawork, and pungent editing all in one swallow.
