The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King


Dir. Peter Jackson. 2003, 250 min (extended version). With Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, Viggo Mortenson. The adventures of Frodo, Aragorn, Gollum, Gandalf, and all of Tolkien’s other colorful characters come to a rousing conclusion in the pull-out-all-the-stops final chapter of Peter Jackson’s epic. This intensely emotional and visually dazzling movie— gargantuan Hollywood filmmaking at its very best—won eleven Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Director.
