The Pocket Essentials Series is a dynamic series of books that are concise, lively, and easy to read. Packed with facts as well as expert opinions, each book has all the key information you need to know about such popular topics as film, television, cult fiction, history, and more.
This Pocket Essential explores how the films George Lucas has directed operate and how they connect together. Whether its the comedy of American Graffiti, the machinations of The Phantom Menace, or the oppression of THX 1138, Lucas films celebrate the power of the maverick sensibility.
It is a sensibility for which Lucas has become a pop culture icon not just in the kinds of stories he tells but in his approach to the medium of movie-making. The book covers the landmark movies - from student movies to Indiana Jones and Star Wars - and also looks at Lucas achievements beyond his work as a director with his creation of Industrial Light and Magic, Skywalker Ranch, and other media ventures, particularly his advocation and development of digital cinema.
