RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 144570924 LA English T1 Empire of dreams : the science fiction and fantasy films of Steven Spielberg A1 Gordon, Andrew,, PB Rowman & Littlefield PP Lanham, Md. YR 2008 SN 9780742555778 0742555771 9780742555785 074255578X AB In the 1970s and 1980s, along with George Lucas, Spielberg helped spark the renaissance of American SF and fantasy film, and he has remained highly productive and prominent in these genres ever since. SF, fantasy, and horror films form the bulk of his work for over thirty years; of the twenty-six theatrical features he directed from 1971 to 2005, sixteen are of these genres, a coherent and impressive body of work. His films have become part of a global consciousness and his cinematic style part of the visual vocabulary of world media. --from publisher description.
