THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING (2001), which appeared on the American Film Institute’s anniversary list of the greatest American films of all time, was recognized in the year of its release with an AFI AWARD, naming among the most outstanding motion pictures of year. According to the official rationale, the film “taps the magical forces of American film to bring life to J.R.R. Tolkien’s rich literary legacy. Never losing sight of the ‘human’ elements of this first book in his trilogy, the scope of the film sets the standard by which future motion picture epics should be judged.”
