“No, no, no. I mean, have you watched all of the Star Wars movies AT THE SAME TIME?!“

For what it is, it’s sort of watchable for curious nerds, and there are moments of interesting overlap and clutter. It’s a little like art installations involving multiple projections, such as The Shining: Forwards and Backwards (as discussed in Rodney Ascher‘s documentary Room 237), or Douglas Gordon’s Between Darkness and Light (After William Blake), which superimposes The Exorcist over The Song of Bernadette.[via Laughing Squid]
