Back cover copy

'I'm one of those people who find the real world of no particular interest.' With the dystopian sci-fi of Blade Runner, the feminist road movie Thelma & Louise and the Roman epic Gladiator, Ridley Scott has demonstrated that he is an astonishingly versatile director, equally at home with ancient history as he is with the distant future. Combining vivid imagery with rich drama, Scott's films are the epitome of intelligent cinema, a powerful marriage of style and content. Scott has worked with many of Hollywood's most accomplished stars, including Sigourney Weaver, Brad Pitt, Russell Crowe, Anthony Hopkins, Susan Sarandon and Tom Cruise. Alien, only his second feature as a director, remains one of the most enduring and influential examples of the science fiction and horror genre and, with Black Hawk Down, Hannibal and the magnificent Gladiator, Scott's career has regained the prominence it had in the late 1970s and early 1980s. This indispensable guide provides a thorough chronological examination of Ridley Scott's directorial career. All of Scott's films are included, along with information on his frequent collaborators, his thoughts on his own films, and a section on his unrealised projects. This is the essential reference guide to one of mainstream cinema's most diverse directors.show more
