The first book-length study of the work of Australian film-maker Baz Luhrmann, covering his life and the influences on his career. The book is based on in-depth interviews with Luhrmann and his chief collaborator Catherine Martin as well as archival research conducted in Australia. Each of Luhrmann's films is discussed in substantial chapters that explore the issues raised by his work. Areas examined include Luhrmann's status as a transnational auteur in the context of an increasingly globalised Australian film industry, the relationship of his independent production company to the major Hollywood studio 20th Century Fox, and the impact of new technologies on his films and working methods.
