Description - Films of Peter Weir by Jonathan Rayner

Peter Weir is one of the most important Australian film directors. His films have had a major impact, both in terms of the Australian film industry ("Picnic at Hanging Rock", "The Cars That Ate Paris", and "Gallipoli") and as the work of an innovative auteur working within the confines of the Hollywood system ("Witness", "Dead Poets Society", "Fearless", and "The Truman Show"). This fully revised and updated edition of Jonathan Rayner's study takes an in-depth look at the career of a filmmaker who has, over the course of 30 years, put together a substantial and much-loved body of work. Rayner illustrates how Peter Weir brings a consistent vision to his films, no matter how disparate their subject matter - and how he uses his 'outsider' status in the American film industry to his advantage.
