Star Wars Considered as a George Lucas Biography

Or, The Hollywood ("Do as I say, not as I do!") Story Version 1138. Jim Geraghty at National Review Online takes a skeptical look at the disconnect between the messages presented in the Star Wars heptalogy and what Lucas himself has done in and with the movies, and saves the most pointed question for last.

On a related topic, does anyone else think it's cool that such archetypal geek subjects as Star Trek and Star Wars can be discussed seriously in major political magazines like National Review? Obviously I do.
