Anthony Lane on Star Wars: Episode III

Anthony Lane gives the new Star Wars movie a terrific shoeing in the New Yorker. Lane wasn't gone on the Phantom Menace, and it looks like he positively despises Revenge of the Sith. An Spailpín will got to see the movie anyway, of course, but Lane's review is terribly well done: "The general opinion of 'Revenge of the Sith' seems to be that it marks a distinct improvement on the last two episodes, 'The Phantom Menace' and 'Attack of the Clones.' True, but only in the same way that dying from natural causes is preferable to crucifixion." Miaow!
