Remember Luke Skywalker blowing up the Death Star in Star Wars? How about the tail-fin of a plane prowling through the clouds in Airplane? The movie’s first journey into cyberspace when Tron fights for the users on the game-grid? Or Lily Tomlin, The Incredible Shrinking Woman, falling down her own garbage disposal? Or Johnny Depp’s acid road trip in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas? All of them indelible cinematic images immortalized by Bruce Logan.
