All about mythology
7 November 2007 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I went into watching this documentary thinking that it would be merely people, albeit famous ones, chatting away at how watching Star Wars as a kid changed their life. I was fortunately mistaken, as it turned out, in spite of the first couple of misleading minutes, to be an attempt at explaining the immense popularity of the saga, and a fairly successful one at that. It is suggested herein that everyone can find something to relate to, in the two trilogies, spiritually, emotionally and personality-wise. A mass of ancient mythology, as well as historical facts and religious ideas are uncovered in various scenes, characters and themes. Whether placed there with intent or not. Many of these explored connections are interesting, and several border on downright fascinating. Rather than revealing what they are here, I urge you to seek out this special for your own viewing. It is briefly touched upon that there are details in the new trilogy that could be construed as echoing that of recent US politics, specifically Bush Jr., but the one person who comments on the existence of such denounces it as being improbable that they were intentional. The editing is nicely done, if they got perhaps a tad overexcited about the use of split-screen at times(with that being said, the vast majority of the usage of such was effective). The film-makers(and others) who appear add more than one might expect. It's remarkably well-paced, I don't recall being bored for a second, and I don't normally go for documentaries. I recommend this to any fan of the franchise, and anyone interested in the deeper levels, whether they are fans or not. 7/10
