When watching the “Star Wars” movies anywhere, are we ourselves or little kids joyously gulping down all the scenes presented to us, innocent of the world’s problems? “For Love of the Film” lovingly portrays this question as a print of 1997’s “A New Hope” breaks and leaves an audience groaning and bitching, until the manager, failing to calm them down, becomes Obi-Wan Kenobi. By and large, the audience starts to respond and within a matter of seconds, the projection problems melt away from their minds. They are content now with firing lasers, being Darth Vader, using lightsabers, and becoming what they love.

In turn, “For Love of the Film” contains what we all love about Star Wars. It is the adventure we put into our own minds by watching the films, disappearing into this world and not returning for a time. The passion in the theater is understandable and is a giddy joy to watch. They are not only themselves, they are all of us who have ever wanted to do anything in the Star Wars universe.
