Since the ’70s, Spielberg has reigned as one of Hollywood’s top filmmakers — if not the top one period — and a surprising number of the movies that earned him that exalted position deal with daddy issues, from “E.T.” to “Lincoln.” On the heels of directing December 2021’s big-screen reimagining of “West Side Story,” a musical he fell in love with as a kid, he’s gone back to the source of that artistic preoccupation with “The Fabelmans,” a semi-autobiographical movie about his childhood starring Paul Dano and Michelle Williams.
