“Why I was Compelled to See Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Three Times” by Steve Laux
I am a Star Wars fan. Just putting that out there, up front. Now that the wait is over, there’s been a tidal wave of content written about the film, and more will ensue as anticipation builds for the remaining films in the Disney/Lucasfilm pipeline. Editorials run the gamut, ranging from adoring and speculative, to hyper-critical and in certain instances, downright off-base. And so, I will attempt to articulate my personal experience with a modicum of impartiality as best I can.
