Another Striking Pre-9/11 Film Reference: Keaton’s “The Squeeze” (1987)

"Progress" constituted by bringing down the towers on 9/11

As outlined in many places on my blog, such as this post, there are scores of such references in films prior to 9/11 that point to planned events and a stage show drama surrounding the destruction of that day.

  1. Hi Jaysanalysis,
    I take your point, In Star Wars V, the Empire Strikes Back, there is a scene in which the bounty hunter Boba Fett, Darth Vader and Lando Callrisian are watching Han Solo being prepared for carbon freezing and transport to Jabba the Hutt. At the start of the scene, Chewbacca becomes violent and starts attacking storm troopers, throwing them aside and generally causing trouble. Boba Fett levels his gun to kill Chewbacca but Vader lowers the bounty hunter’s weapon before he can fire. Why? Does Darth have a soft spot for Wookies? The shot has a certain degree of poignancy and I wonder if Lucas was trying to say something about either a) Darth’s character or b) some historical reference between Darth and Chewbacca which isn’t covered in the films but might be apparent in the books etc.
    I look forward to your next post

  2. This theory was developed by the nineteen century French philosopher George Sorel (1847-1922). As it has been historically demonstrated, anytime it has been employed it has reached its goal. It is a highly effective way to bring down any government or corporate elite regardless of its power and strength.
