Empire of Dreams: The Story of the Star Wars Trilogy ★★★★★

I probably won't get to see the new movie for a while- so I thought I'd cure my depression by watching this awesome documentary.

This was a bonus disc in the first DVD boxset that came out over ten years ago.

Pretty comprehensive at 2.5 hours- there's some ego stroking towards the end where it concerns the special editions and prequels but otherwise an excellent overview.

The biggest takeaway is how difficult it was to make these films (even after the first one was successful) and the personal and professional toll it took on Lucas.
