Revenge of the Myth

Via Pete Baker on Slugger, another marvellous Peter Bradshaw review: this time of the latest and last installment of the Star Wars movies. This is up there with Bradshaw's previous review (that I mentioned a few months ago) of Bicentennial Man. My favourite passage in the Star Wars reviews slates the guy playing Darth Vader:
As an actor Christensen must show the terrible embryo of future wickedness within himself. And how does he do this? By tilting his head down, looking up through lowered brows and giving the unmistakable impression that he is very, very cross. If Princess Diana had gone to the Dark Side, she would have looked a lot like this.
I'll be off to see it next week, damn sheep that I am.
