Below is a short compilation of the love we’ve received from the media 24 hours after the official announcement of our world premiere. Look for my interview with Wired.com later today!
‘I’m trying to decide whether or not to spend $1500-plus so I can attend 2010 South by Southwest. […] It may be worth it just to see The People vs. George Lucas.’ (Hollywood Elsewhere)
‘Premiering at the SXSW film festival is this amazing little documentary that shows the everyday battle we all fight in our love/hate relationship with George Lucas. Diving deep into expert opinion and fandom rage and love the directors analyze the deep dark relationship we all have with Lucas and Star Wars.’ (Meredith Woerner, io9.com)
‘Do you think George Lucas is “the Antichrist” and “a little devil disguised as a false prophet”? Or do you believe he’s “unlocked a generation’s imagination”? Either way, the new documentary The People vs. George Lucas, which debuts at next month’s South By Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival in Austin, is going to be a must-see. (Scott Edelman, Sci-Fi Wire)
‘As we continue to pick through the massive 191-feature deep lineup of this year’s South by Southwest Film Festival, we continue to find little films that we’ve been excited about for some time. Chief among these gems is the Star Wars-centric documentary The People vs. George Lucas.’ (Neil Miller, Film School Rejects)
‘The Documentary I have been looking forward to the most is The People Vs George Lucas. Mostly because I think these people really do understand the love affair that Star Wars fans have with the franchise.
Only someone you love this much can hurt you so deeply. If a movie upset you so badly, you would just dismiss it and be satisfied to publicly snub it by denying its existence. But not Star Wars fans! We just LOVE this so much that we are so deeply offended that Star Wars has treated us this way, and we just must voice these deep hurts to anyone who will listen.
The doc is finally going to be released at the South by Southwest Film Festival next month and I hope soon after we will get a DVD release.’ (TheMovieBlog.com)
