   schema:description ""John Muir follows Raimi from his very early start in filmmaking to his box office record-breaking work on Spider-Man - with the biggest opening weekend in history, earning more than $114 million. Raimi's influence on other filmmakers can be seen in not only the "shaky cam" shots of the Coen brothers but also in the early oeuvre of Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson. The Unseen Force also features a look at the much-anticipated Spider-Man 2." "Included here are thirty first-person accounts and interviews from a variety of eclectic sources - from the cinematographers who shot Raimi's early films to the producers, screenwriters, actors, special effects magicians, and composers who collaborated to make his films the stuff of legend."--Jacket."@en ;
