Emma Chantiri 🇵🇸 🇱🇧’s review published on Letterboxd:
Heeded my words not, did you? Pass on what you have learned. Strength. Mastery. But weakness, folly, failure also. Yes, failure most of all. The greatest teacher, failure is. Luke, we are what they grow beyond. That is the true burden of all masters.
A modern movie miracle, we're not our masters, we're not our leaders, we will go beyond our past and rewrite the future in dazzling color. The conceptual ideas from the prequel trilogy and Return of the Jedi working in tandem and producing a golden shining work filled with tapestry and raging hope. All things are binded, the force exists through everyone, we can disassociate from the dogma that separates people into different ideologies and falsehoods; making us all one. Heroism is a fabrication, there is only us saving the ones we love, we all go down with the ship. So many little moments of people helping each other with unabashed affection and reverence.
Finn and Roses arc is just perfection the best and closest I've seen this franchise liberate the little guy, all these characters are leads in their own story. Everyone is filled with contradictions, flaws, history is filled with bloodshed and poison but we can envision a destiny for us all. A way to take what we've learnt and build a foundation, let the past die if we have to. Plays like a greatest hits show of everything I come to Star Wars for and builds its own extension, its own way out from what came before. From the gorgeous visuals to the melodrama it comes together like an absolute dream. Savoired every moment because I know there will never be a blockbuster like this again.
