'The People vs. George Lucas' Filmmakers Chat at LA Film Festival
I had the opportunity this afternoon to chat with "The People vs. George Lucas" director Alexandre O. Philippe and producer Robert Muratore downtown at the Los Angeles Film Festival HQ.
Talking about their documentary, screening tonight at 8:30 p.m. at the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre, Philippe and Muratore explain the love-hate relationship that fervent fans feel toward the "Star Wars" creator.
Did Lucas take a wrong turn with his "Star Wars" prequels, inviting more hate than love, especially when it comes to Jar Jar Binks?
Superfans don't hold back in their video submissions for the film, a new concept of filmmaking that takes advantage of our social-media zeitgeist.
Definitely sounds like a fun film to check out.
Oh, and that last question I ask, I forgot to add the twin Stormtrooper bookends. ... You'll see what I mean.
