Irvin Kershner 1923 - 2010

It's often forgotten that George Lucas didn't direct The Empire Strikes Back, arguably the best of the Star Wars series.
I think it went beyond 'Star Wars'. You had some humor, you got to know the characters a little better. I saw it as the second movement in an opera. That's why I wanted some of the things slower. And it ends in a way that you can't wait to see or to hear the vivace, the allegretto. I didn't have a climax at the end. I had an emotional climax.
