Considering all the diverse elements that make up Star Wars, its permeation of pop culture is somewhat surprising. Effeminate droids, walking carpets, archaic religions, spaceships, and, of course, lightsabers all make for interesting mix, but one that is greater than its whole. That said, this film’s ultimate merit lies in its ability to tell a tale as old as time in a completely fresh way.
The themes of this movie are very close to many other dystopian futures: sterility, government oppression, and lack of identity. Here we see the main and titular character experiencing all of those. A must see for a fan of futuristic movies.
