he's not delusional. control for the sake of control was always more important than artistic integrity and public enjoyment and availibility.
hypocrite? yes. and deceitful con artist. reviews seem to confirm my suspiscion that red tails is nothing more than pearl harbor/red dawn/delta force. he just wanted to use the tuskegee airmen as a gimmick to differentiate his movie with your average juvenile shoot-em up. whats great is most reviews are stating that the tuskegee airman do deserve to have a great movie and that red tails doesn't cut it. Lucas was hoping to label critics as anti-tuskegee and anyone that criticized the movie as racist and nobody is falling for it (well....except for the apologist sycophants). and people are now laughing at his bogus "im really an art-house filmmaker' nonsense.
It took 30 years...and sadly the desecration of a once-proud saga...but we are finally making progress. the academy can't vacate his irving thalberg award, but maybe perhaps digitally remove him from the footage of martin scorsese winning the oscar in 2007.
