Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Star Wars: The Last Jedi ★★★★½

Johnson is easily the most skilled filmmaker to ever helm one of these – it’s not even close – and it’s not just that the film has a surface beauty of its own. (Though it does; there’s a particular story turn that’s complemented with a tableaux as simultaneously gorgeous and thrilling as any in recent memory.) He’s aware of what we expect narratively from a 'Star Wars' movie, and delights in subverting it.
