Summary

There is silence as they stare at the fire. Anakin is thinking.

Jacob Sirof

Notes

Film

  • Starts with a series of glances between Anakin and Padmé, and ends with Anakin wishing he could wish away his feelings.
  • Hayden Christensen is almost too good at playing the awkward teenager.

Podcast

  • Pete remembers hecklers in the crowd during this scene when he saw it the second time.
  • Jacob relates to Anakin's frustration and chemical attraction to Padmé on a personal level; it's how he approaches love.
  • This is the emo Star Wars movie. The Prequel Trilogy tackles heartache, which is not touched on in the Original Trilogy.
  • The common theme of characters saying "I will never do..." and then being proven wrong in the Prequels. The things they "can't" do are a blueprint for what they end up doing.
  • This movie as a buffet of genres.
  • Anakin's "I will do anything you ask" parallels his oath to Palpatine when he becomes Darth Vader.
  • The real-life reality (rather than movie reality) is uncomfortable.
  • Dating is much more difficult when you actually care.
