An interesting effort, worth a look for fans
24 August 2000 | by See all my reviews

Any Lucas fan worth his salt will want to check out this embryonic piece detailing the failed attempt of a boy to escape from unknown pursuers; presumably representatives of a repressive "empire". It is noteworthy that even at this stage of his career, Lucas was fascinated by war. The bitter disillusionment expressed here provides a sharp contrast to the cheerful optimism and good-triumphs-over-evil ending of the Star Wars trilogy. The symbolic desire for freedom here could equally apply to freedom of the imagination, an autonomy Lucas has always sought from studios in producing his work.
