Abstract:

Peter Jackson made history with The lord of the rings. The unassuming New Zealander amazed the world of cinema with his audacity and verve. This former director of anarchic, low-budget splatter movies was the unlikeliest of filmmakers to tackle a revered work of 20th century literature. But, in adapting Tolkein's Middle-earth mythos into blockbusters that are equal parts spectacle, computer effects and emotional poeticism, he has changed the rules of modern filmmaking.
