  • Trevor Tillman's rating of the film The Director and The Jedi

    PR-filtered fluff, but Mark Hamill's candor and lack of restraint made this feel more authentic than expected. Also, Rian Johnson being mic'd up for seemingly the entire production lent itself to brief glimpses of the anxiety and occasional panic that must come with the burden and privilege of making a Star Wars films. I would've liked more of that. RJ's otherwise zen calm, bordering on taciturn, is downright heroic.
