8º – Jaws (Steven Spielberg, 1975)Responsible for leveraging Steven Spielberg’s career in the middle of the seventh art, ‘Jaws’ brings in its plot the story of a white shark of abnormal proportions that begins to terrorize a beach, attacking its visitors at sea. The film will gain its dynamism when some individuals, headed by the efforts of the local sheriff, decide to try to prevent the shark from continuing to torment the beach. Suspense at first, working to completely capture the attention of its viewer, the film continues to impress by its extreme quality until the present day.
