Biography Robert Zemeckis
Zemeckis (Zemeckis), Robert (p. 14. 05. 1951), American film director, screenwriter and producer.
He graduated from the University of Southern California in 1973. While still a student shot 14-minute tape 'Field of honor' (Field of Honor), received the award at the festival of student films. He worked as an editor of commercials. He wrote scripts for television series 'McCloud' with Bob Gale, who continues to cooperate on this day. First, put two comedies - "I want to hold your hand '(I Wanna Hold Your Hand, 1978) and' Used Cars' (Used Cars, 1980). Zemeckis is called "the most sensible director in Hollywood '. Indeed, all his projects are gold - in the past 13 years, he has not been a single failure. Zemeckis is probably the most talented representative of the 'school of Spielberg's' organically growing ideas teacher, first embodied in the now classic tapes' Close Encounters of the third kind', 'E. T., ET ', which appeared in an updated form of traditional Hollywood values. In this regard, typical, for example, the first commercially viable picture Zemeckis 'Romancing the Stone' (Romancing the Stone, 1984), which is exemplary postmodernist game with adventure stories. The authors would like teetering on the brink of a possible. But it is obvious that the characters are taken 'from the books', and the incident in which they are involved - a collage of literary and cinematic experience. The director assesses 'Romancing the Stone' as 'an appropriate movie to watch his entire family, and at the same time it is - a love story'.
. However, the maximum polizhanrovost reveals next tape 'Back to the Future' (Back To The Future, 1985), described as Zemeckis 'comedy-musical-sci-fi film about the problems of growing up, teenagers and their parents'
. Postmodernist fusion of genres appears not head, . Theoretical development, . well as some new style, . perceived as the natural flow of American life, . what, . sure, . surprising, . because we are talking about events absolutely fantastic,
. Marty MakFlay son is not very wealthy and successful parents, returning 'back to the future' after the time travel and found them in much better shape: a lesson he taught to parents in the past benefited them. After the box-office picture, "Back to the Future" Zemeckis makes 'step aside' and instead, . to proceed immediately to continue shooting, . as demanded by producers, . begins work on the film 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit' (Who Framed Roger Rabbit, . 1988),
. Recycling old archetypes, genres, and here the heroes reached a new unprecedented quality. In Multlyandii, for example, live their 'private life' virtually all American animation characters - from Woody Vudpekera to the elephant Dumbo. Yes, and Roger, too, collected by parts: his body - from Disney's head - from cartoons firms 'Warner', and demeanor - from cartoon characters Tex Ayveri. It was only in 1989, Zemeckis decided to 'listen' requirements of producers and withdrew without a break, "Back to the Future 2 '(Back To The Future Part II) and' Back to the Future-3 '(Back To The Future Part III, 1990). He is not in vain because postponing the inevitable capture of continuations: a number of objective reasons, they always come out worse than the original. Nevertheless, it seems that he was honorably released from the test, without changing its principles. In 1992, out of his next film 'Death Becomes Her-to-face' (Death Becomes Her) - is well conceived and competent 'black comedy'. But Zemeckis it was a step on the spot. But the 'Forrest Gump' (Forrest Gump, 1994, 6 awards 'Oscar', including film and best director) was a leap to a record distance - is a parable about the invariant of the American national character. Any national character, taken out of context, and especially from the perspective of another national character, there is stupidity and stupidity. However, this picture is, of course, reflects the journey 'baby boomers' in his youth - with an ironic revaluation of values. Next film Zemeckis 'Contact' (Contact) came only in summer 1997. He perfectly fits into the paradigm of 'coming next' (or, if you like, 'end of history', 'new age' and t. etc.), which began in the mid-70's with the introduction of the reality of science fiction speculation. Original President Clinton with the help of computer graphics gives a speech about a fictional contact with other civilizations. Real country is shown as embodied utopia, . cohesive functioning society dedicated positivists, . which combined the collective search for a reasonable explanation of things, . alien to the European existential and trying to find billions of light years confirm the existence of God.,
