The Nerdwriter provides us with another brilliant video essay, this one breaking down how the character of Darth Vader became one of the most iconic figures in pop culture despite being on screen for just 34 minutes…


Taking a deep look into Vader’s screen-time in the original trilogy of Star Wars films, the video essay studies the way the villains now-unmistakeable visual style was built up through the use of colour and silhouette, adding to the character’s intrigue.

Not just focusing on the costume and general visual style of the character, the video looks into the different spins put onto Vader by the directors of each film in the trilogy, from the dark and shadowy way Vader was first presented in A New Hope through the grubbier, more battered version of the character seen in the final instalment Return of the Jedi.
