Great ones re-imagine the books they put onscreen, daringly reassembling or reshaping the pieces. They're faithful to the spirit rather than the letter... Peter Jackson showed that kind of creativity on Heavenly Creatures... but he surpasses the expectations anyone might have had for him with Fellowship." To read more, CLICK HERE.
