The People vs. George Lucas, 1 DVD, 88 minutes
Génial pour certains, démoniaque pour d'autres, George Lucas est sans aucun doute le réalisateur le plus critiqué de l'histoire du cinéma. Pourquoi tant de fans de Star Wars lui ont tourné le dos lors des sorties DVD des éditions spéciales ? Pourquoi George Lucas est-il autant la cible des bloggers et des critiques? The People vs. George Lucas tentera de répondre à ces questions en analysant l'héritage culturel de l'homme qui est entouré de mystère. La passion des fans autour de la trilogie Star Wars est sans égal. Mais lorsqu'il s'agit de George Lucas, leur ardeur est partagée entre admiration et haine. Cet hilarant et sincère documentaire plonge dans une enquête pour répondre à de nombreuses questions sur les choix et les principes de George Lucas autour de Star Wars. Lucas a gâché son chef-d'oeuvre ? Faut-il simplement laisser la trilogie originale seule ? "La menace fantôme" devrait-elle être interdite pour la santé de tous ? Ce documentaire reprend de nombreuses interviews tirées de plus de 600 heures de rushes agrémentées par des mises en scènes parodiant les scènes cultes de Star Wars en comédie musicale, en Lego, en pâte à modeler, en marionnettes et papier mâcher...

Un doc de peu d'intérêt donc, dont le mérite est de présenter quelques fan films amusant mais guère plus.

This documentary brilliantly illustrates the disillusionment so many of us have felt over the last fifteen years. From the poorly made judgment calls in the "special editions" to the introduction of midichlorians and Jar Jar, it's been a rocky number of years for us folks who remember how important and significant his little space opera was to our generation. This film speaks to us and, surprisingly, FOR us. The film acts as an advocate for the disillusioned, but also as an advocate for the man who is "the creator". It does a great job of playing devil's advocate and is surprisingly balanced as well. It's not 90 minutes of Lucas bashing....it clearly illustrates the love/hate relationship we have. It's almost like the parental love/hate relationship. I've always loved my parents...but there were times I truly thought I hated them as well. The point being......he gave me some of the best memories of my youth. The original trilogy, Indiana Jones, a truckload of REALLY fun toys, and the desire to let my imagination fly to galaxies far far away....all thanks to him. Can I really bring myself to loathe him for letting Greedo shoot first??? The answer is yes....and no. Like any loving relationship, there are tons of grey areas. This film cleverly (and lovingly) sorts through those grey areas and provides a loving and light-hearted tribute to a creator/visionary, and those of us who love/hate the hell out of him.
Certainly a must see for those of you who cringed when the fridge was nuked, or cried out loud when Greedo shot first.
The People vs George Lucas is an entertaining, well-presented analysis of the on-going love-hate relationship that exists between Star Wars fans - particularly those that had grown up with the Original Trilogy (Episodes IV-VI), and George Lucas. The original trilogy was created in the late '70s -
80's, long before digital effects and under financial constraint (the original Star Wars, Episode IV, was expected to be a flop). Many fans that grew up with the Original Trilogy accepted the movies as they were, flaws and all - and that was fine with them, and there was a great admiration for Lucas.
As new technology, particularly the advent of digital effects. became available, new "editions" of the original trilogy were released. At first, some of the changes were improvements - correcting visual errors, adding more explosions, etc... However, with the release of the much anticipated prequel trilogy (Episodes I-III) between 1999-2005, long-time, hard core devotees began to be disollusioned with Mr. Lucas. The disappointing Episode I, and the entire new prequel trilogy, were over-laden with CGI and digital characters that became the source of much resentment (see Jar-Jar binks). Further, Lucas went back and added unnecessary CGI to the Original Trilogy, poorly edited Episode IV's famous "Han-shot first" scene to change the introduction of a much beloved character, and generally changed the films for the worse.
The People vs George Lucas chronicles the controversial manipulation of one of the most popular movie franchises of all time. It does so with slick humor that includes many fan-created pieces and is must-see for any Star Wars fan who knows "Han shot first" and cringes everytime Vader says "NOOOOOO" at the end of Episode VI.
Darkwater, HIRAM & thetraveler333 have the more in-depth reviews. Anything else I would write would echo most of what they wrote.
I did like the easter egg extras more then another reviewer did, particularly the fan reaction to the 3D versions. If there's one thing I would say that I would've liked the makers of this movie to delve into, possibly as another easter egg, is the expanded STAR WARS universe (Tales of the Jedi, the various novels, Legacy era, & soon the upcoming MMO) & how it relates to what Lukas has been doing. Hows the reaction on peoples ends on that equasion?
Regardless, if you're a STAR WARS fan, particularly if you're old enough to remember even 1 of the original movies (long) before Lukas began with the changes then you do yourself a disservice by not seeing or having this film in your collection.
