The People vs. George Lucas
Do you think George Lucas is "the Antichrist" and "a little devil disguised as a false prophet"? Or do you believe he's "unlocked a generation's imagination"? Either way, the new documentary The People vs. George Lucas, which debuts at next month's South By Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival in Austin, is going to be a must-see.
We haven't gotten a chance to watch the complete movie yet, but according to Nikki Finke, the long list of talking heads includes producer Gary Kurtz, Sandy Lieberson (former head of production at 20th Century Fox) and David Prowse (aka Darth Vader).
Here are two trailers for film, the first slicker and more recent, the second twice as long and with more of the interesting, controversial quotes. Whether you think the director of Star Wars has fulfilled his destiny or destroyed his legacy, check them out and let us know what you think!
