About this product
- DescriptionAmong the most expensive--and most profitable--films of all time, the works of James Cameron have had a profound effect upon popular culture and the techlogy of moviemaking. Yet the very blockbuster nature of his films means that the political commentary, cultural discourse and rich symbolism within the works are often overlooked. From <i>The Terminator</i> to <i>Avatar</i>, the director has evinced a persistence of themes, concerns and visions that capture the contemporary zeitgeist. This collection of essays on James Cameron's films, written by a diverse group of scholars from a wide range of disciplines, provides a comprehensive exploration of the work and legacy of one of America's foremost filmmakers.
