Why Rian Johnson didn’t reveal more about Snoke in The Last Jedi

Warning: This article contains spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi swam the depths of its main characters’ stories, digging into Rey’s (Daisy Ridley) past and parentage and bringing to light the vulnerabilities and ardent desires of Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac). It also explored the struggle between light and dark that both Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) faced. But one figure fans hoped to discover more about than they actually did was Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis). 

During a QA session ahead of the 71st annual British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA) ceremony, The Last Jedi writer-director Rian Johnson revealed why he was stingy about giving up information relating to Snoke, and why audiences didn’t get to glean from the film additional details on the villain’s past. 

“In this particular story, it’s much more like the original trilogy, where with Snoke if you think about the

The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson Is a Shattering Documentary

The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson.

David France’s shattering new documentary The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson begins with its subject’s 1992 funeral and a procession in which men and women angrily scream at police, who stare ahead, blank-faced. At least the cops don’t beat them senseless, the way they might have 25 years earlier. Marsha P. Johnson had something to do with that.

The exuberant Johnson, a trans

Retired FBI agent to lead Johnson cold case probe

Adams met with members of the Ogletree family, including Johnson’s sister Becky Peterman, Aug. 18 to discuss his plans. Adams said he intended to bring in a retired investigator with no prior history working the murder to put fresh eyes on the vast but aging case file.

The investigation will be paid for with forfeiture funds generated by the DA’s office.

Last week, Adams swore in retired FBI agent Jalaine G. Ward of Macon to head up the Johnson cold case team. Ward retired after 27 years as an FBI special agent based in Macon. She is now associated with Gold Shield 1881, consulting on corporate security and investigations and corporate executive protection detailing. With the FBI, she had 24 years experience in crisis negotiations and behavioral analysis profiling. She worked at length as a crisis negotiator and coordinated the FBI’s Atlanta behavioral analysis unit.

Much profiling was done on the Johnson
