A Look at Star Wars if It Were Directed by Social-Realist UK Filmmaker Ken Loach


I don’t know how many of you are familiar with Ken Loach, the British filmmaker who unflinchingly depicts the hardships of the working class in England, Scotland and Ireland – usually featuring characters whose accents are so thick they need subtitles when they screen over here. His movies tend to be so serious, sad and political that they’re hard to satirize without being mean-spirited – but by the Force, I think satirists Greg Haiste and Marie Lawrence, and director Nick Reed, have nailed it by imagining Loach’s take on Star Wars.

And even if you don’t know Loach’s work, Vader as a PE teacher and that lightsaber boner scene may win you over nonetheless.
