A renegade
21 November 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This documentary consists of expert interviews(researchers, fellow fiction creators), animated reenactments, film clips, real and behind the scenes footage and narration. It goes into George Lucas with the original Star Wars trilogy being the focus(and they do go briefly into the terrible prequels, as well).

Covered are his revolutionizing predictions(some of these still in development) of The Force as something that combines all things in the universe = dark matter, holographic technology, internal thoughts to external messages, targeting computers with functioning Heads-Up Displays, navigating robots, prosthetic limbs and magnetically driven floating vehicles.

Also explored are his personal choices in making the two great movies and the one that's OK, such as a tenable sense of credibility, combining science and myth(today we tend to lose touch with what was believed, with a more direct connection with nature and the world around us), and a focus on speed.

There is a little disturbing and violent content in this. I recommend this to any fan of the once-compelling writer/director. 8/10
