Peter Jackson’s enchanting adaptation of the first installment of J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic fantasy trilogy is a joyfully conceived work of cinema that rewards both adepts and novices with the highest compliment of all: an intelligence and artistry as a movie, independent of blind fidelity to the page. Jackson excels at shifting perspectives, both structurally and visually, from the epic to the intimate and back again.
