The book delivers on its title. The author reviews editing theory, shot selection and technique using as much information is available outside the Lucasfilm archives. Rather than being another account of how great the movie was, "The Editing of Star Wars" is a calm examination of the editing choices that helped it become great. I've wanted to read a focused book about Paul Hirsch, Richard Chew and Marcia Lucas' editing work for the movie since watching the "Empire of Dreams" segment about, and here it is.

Amazing insight into an amazing movie. I finished it so quickly that I immediately re-read it. I scoured libraries and the internet to find most of the sources and watched them to see the theories in action. It's my favorite movie and after reading this, I'm convinced that the editing made this the movie that I love. If you love star wars, editing, editing theories, or just want to understand the art of editing a little better, read this! Required reading for all editors and editing students!

A quick read about the art of film editing and it's impact on one of the most famous movies of all time. Will be watching Star Wars with a new set of eyes to pay attention to how important film editing is to visually telling a story.

Even though it's a short book, it's a really good one.

I appreciate the valuable observations this essay (you can't really call it a book) offers, but I was hoping for something more in depth. If you have done virtually no previous film study this is a good introduction to editing technique in the context of this very familiar film. If you already know something about the art this piece won't, I'm afraid, teach you something you likely didn't already know.
