Lee; flying and sinking at the same time 💎’s review published on Letterboxd:
The greatest teacher, failure is. Luke, we are what they grow beyond. That is the true burden of all masters.
Johnson clearly paid attention when watching the Lucas films; when he wants to, he cross-cuts the fuck out of this. A fucking miracle, the greatest franchise film of its decade, and when you watch it a couple of days after Revenge Of The Sith, the greatest closing shot in Star Wars. As meaningless (or reductive) as the films surrounding it are, at least that shot exists.
