a friend of mine is doing some thesis or another on different perspectives of modern films and has chosen star wars as their subject.
now to me star wars was just a fantasy movie with wizards and where good overcomes evil and harmless fun,but after watching the film with my friend over the weekend i see it in a totally different light and heres why,imagine this if you will and bear with me on this...
the emperor is george w bush
darth vader is tony blair
the stormtroopers are the us/british armies
luke skywalker is osama bin laden leading a band of rebels against a corrupt empire.the empereor wants total control and tries to do this with a tyranical imperialism and tries to hunt luke down.
the death star is the world trade centre.
i know star wars was made 20 odd years before 9/11 but the entire film is seen in a different light when viewed this way.as my friend said to me while watching the film ''one persons terrorist is another mans freedom fighter''.
i wont be able to watch the films the same way again.
what are your opinions on this?
and what other films can be viewed in a different perspective with the same effect?
isnt innuendo an italian suppository?
im gonna ride the wild wind!
