Georges Melies: First Wizard of Cinema 1896-1913
5 January 2016 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

I love his films.Just love.So,my review's of his films will be same,Pardon me for my laziness and repetition,but I can't something new,because his films are the same in fact,each his film is the great magic presentation(no story,just illusion) and you must watch all of them in one breath. He made a huge impact on world culture.here is quote from Wikipedia: "Walt Disney, on being presented with the Legion of Honour in 1936, expressed gratitude to Méliès and his fellow pioneer Émile Cohl, saying they "discovered the means of placing poetry within the reach of the man in the street."Terry Gilliam has called Méliès "the first great film magician," adding: "His joyous sense of fun and ability to astound were a big influence on both my early animations and then my live- action films… Of course, Méliès still has a tight creative grip on me." The 2007 novel The Invention of Hugo Cabret, and 2011 film Hugo based on it, center on the later life of Méliès, who is played by Ben Kingsley in the film.Méliès was inducted into the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame in 2015.
