The People vs. George Lucas

Fantasy nerds have become a topic of increasing interest to indie documentary makers, probably because these fanboys (and -girls) can be counted on to rhapsodize shamelessly about their obsessions onscreen and then drum up an audience for the finished movie online. This look at Star Wars fanatics and their love-hate relationship with George Lucas turns out to be more interesting than most fanboy docs because director Alexandre O. Philippe touches on some fairly knotty matters of film history and creative ownership: principally, whether Lucas was entitled to digitally revise the first three Star Wars movies in the 90s and then embargo the original versions.
