Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Star Wars: The Last Jedi ★★★★½

A rare Hollywood 5-act structure with enough surreal mysticism to make it feel like a true directorial vision. The “infinite Reys” scene is a vivid visualization of storytelling itself, as we see an action from the past dictate a movement in the present; the answers a story can offer us are just reflections of what we already know...

If Skywalker survives the blasters, we have the spark to ignite!
If Skywalker got in, we could get out!
But it is just a magic trick... the point is not if he did those things... it’s that we believe Luke Skywalker could. That a kid on a distant planet could believe, and use that to find the strength inside to transcend.

In the end, the guidance we seek is already inside us.

Needless to say, I think this is the best and most moving Star Wars film.
