This look at Star Wars fanatics and their love-hate relationship with George Lucas turns out to be more interesting than most fanboy docs because director Alexandre O. Philippe touches on some fairly knotty matters of film history and creative ownership.

You don't have to be a "Star Wars" nut to enjoy this fast-paced film, though it's sure to resonate most with those whose childhoods - and beyond - were shaped by the 1977 phenomenon.

If you're a Force completist, this is as crucial as a bootleg of 1978's "Star Wars Holiday Special." Which, by the way, was awesome.

There's a lot of anger floating around in "The People vs.," but Mr. Philippe somehow manages to make the overall tone good-hearted, and he ends on a sentimental note of exasperated love for the man frequently referred to as "the creator."

'The People vs. George Lucas" is an open- and-shut case, but that doesn't mean it can't also be an entertaining one.

It's an exhausting airing of nerd grievances, the monolithic arguments leavened only slightly by counterpoints seemingly inserted for comic relief.
