role of the director [In reply to] Can't Post

There&ThereAgain: Again I think the trilogy is very consistent for having a lot of creative hands in it, but like SA is saying, only in a perfect world does a director have complete control.

I don't recall saying a director has "complete control" over every aspect of the film. I did say that the director's vision is what appears on screen. He's the boss. While PJ might not have seen an edit or heard a piece of music until it was finished--he was responsible for giving it the final okay. As Howard Shore discovered, if the director doesn't like what he sees or hears, it's not going to end up on screen.

What I was responding to in my earlier post was the ludicrous notion that second, third, and fourth unit directors in the LOTR films were off doing their own thing thus accounting for 'inconsistent styles' one fan perceived in the LOTR films. I'm sure it has happened in a film before, particularly one with a poor director who has lost control. But certainly not films directed by an Oscar winner like a Steven Speilberg or a Peter Jackson.

                    The LotR films were remarkably consistent when you consider how often other series - Harry Potter, etc - changed hands with new directors and their visions marcuspaine Send a private message to marcuspaine Oct 3 2012, 1:26am
