WBGO film critic Harlan Jacobson has just returned from the 71st Cannes Film. It’s the highest platform for film art on Planet Earth. One of the films he saw there had some familiarity to it to say the least.
Solo: A Star Wars Story is the 10th installment in George Lucas’ saga begun in 1977.
Even the title is generic: Solo: A Star Wars Story. That’s like “Memorial Day Sale at General Motors: A Sedan!”
