Star Words AOTC Part 4

Obi-Wan’s attempt at reassurance is loaded with irony:

Not these dreams; not for Anakin. Not until the awful future they are foretelling has come to pass. I’m not sure if Obi-Wan has any idea that they might be visions or premonitions. Would that change his response? Maybe not, as the Jedi are so strictly forbidden from having emotional attachments. Maybe he really would advise Anakin to ignore the visions and not concern himself with his mother’s fate. But I can’t quite believe he would be so fully cold-hearted. He seems sincerely sympathetic in this scene as they discuss the dreams tormenting Anakin’s mind. But he also seems to believe that his advice will be enough to console him. “Dreams pass.” And it’s clearly not enough.

    I love this scene. Well, I adore all of AOTC so looking forward to reading her thoughts since she has stated her unqualified love for it, as well. The whole movie has a dream-like quality that I never tire of watching.
