Elstree 1976 (2015)

Director: Jon Spira. 90 min. UK. Documentary.

You'd think a documentary titled Elstree 1976 is about the cinematic revolution filmed in the recognized England studios then. You'd expect a tale of some weird, uplifting atmosphere during the filming of Star Wars. But you'd be disappointed. It's merely the life-story of a few extras, and two actors (David Prowse and Jeremy Bulloch as Vader and Boba Fett, whose faces are covered in the film so who cares). Could've been about any acclaimed film's extras, and their tour of the fan convention circuit. Maybe the film-makers' goal is to humanize these people. But if you thought otherwise, you're nuts.
