    Also any movie now that takes a pro-Last Jedi stance in any way gets all my respect.

Closer to Lana's own secretly navigated The Souvenir Part 2 kinda exercise/experience than a high-stakes legacyquel; along with its sweet sentimental power as a blurry and deeply nerdy coda to Revolutions. Has a simple genesis like the original's where a single big, urgent leap of faith (and concept) from the filmmaker allows her own idiosyncrasies to naturally occupy all levels of choices and subtexts, as well as react to them. Caring not…
