A must see.
3 June 2007 | by (Addison, Illinois, United States) – See all my reviews

Saw this last week on the history channel, and all I can say is wow. There are so many connections between the star wars films and true events in our history that it is astonishing. Whether Lucas connected them on purpose or whether is irrelevant. Watching this documentary made me realize how symbolism is EVERYWHERE in the movies, especially revenge of the sith.

Palpatine as the snake in the garden of Eden and Mustafar being a version of hell, and several connections to Greek mythology are explained and explored. The classic story of hero-turned-monster is explored in other stories. The Empire parallels the Third Reich during World War II, and who could forget Anakin's "If you're not with me, you're my enemy" said in almost the exact same way by George W. Bush.

There are many more things that resemble each other, so watch this documentary to watch them all.
