Review

This book looks mainly at George Lucas as a whole and doesn't just focus on Star Wars. It's well written and insightful. It covers a broad spectrum but it's not as indepth in the same sense as Kaminski's book as it refers heavily on the work of Pollack's book including the inaccuracies. However as stated this is about THX, Indiana Jones and all the various Lucas projects as well as his companies and a further insight into his film making abilities and vision.

Verdict

This is perhaps for keen film makers or George Lucas fans, it's more than a Star Wars book. The book contains many great images of Lucas and as a stand alone reference for Lucas this may just be it.

Rating: 4 out of 5 - Recommended



Brief Description:

Marcus Hearn analyzes Lucas's journey as a director over four decades whose groundbreaking technical achievements and creation of enduring modern mythologies have forever changed both film and science fiction. as well as his many other accomplishments in the film industry, including the formation of Industrial Light & Magic, Skywalker Sound, and LucasArts. The book is lavishly illustrated with many images that have never or rarely been seen, such as stills from Lucas's student films, material from the director's cut of his early science-fiction film, production shots from, among others, the first Star Wars film, American Graffiti and the Indiana Jones Adventures. and behind-the-scenes photos from his films. With its wealth of new information and compelling illustrations, The Cinema of George Lucas is an essential volume for every fan and film enthusiast.
