Jackson: Hobbit or Wizard?

Boston Globe: “Who would have guessed that it would take a woolly bear horror-flick director from New Zealand to restore our faith in epic moviemaking?” Praise for Peter Jackson reaches epic proportions of its own in the wake of The Two Towers‘ release. The Age: “To sustain the illusion of the lost world of Middle-earth […] requires generalship, vision, and magical skill – the qualities of a master sorcerer.” Sydney Morning Herald dubs Jackson “man of the year” for “[eclipsing] Spielberg and Lucas without leaving NZ.”
