Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Star Wars: The Last Jedi ★★★★½

It builds it's entire philosophy atop the McGuffin of a binary past. Johnson's formalism evokes the sincerity of Spielberg, but with a power all of its own, intricately reshaping the galaxy far far away in a new light, leaving behind a world we once knew, with hope that in each other a new one can be built. It's a 2.5 hour set-piece about running away, risking it all, closing your eyes and begging yourself not to trip. But when you don't trip, you open your eyes and forget what you're running from, then when you turn around... silence.
