4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Final Twist!, 25 Nov 2007
This review is from: The Thirteenth Floor [DVD] (DVD)
Great thriller, which will keep you guessing until the last frame. The last twist makes you question what reality is.

It made me ponder whether we really are at the top of the food chain or whether we simply serve as food for hyperdimensional beings? An interesting question which Gurdjieff, Carlos Castaneda and the Sufis amongst others have alluded to. For exploring this question I can recommend the book by Laura Knight-Jadczyk "The Secret History of the World and How to Get Out Alive" for starters.

5.0 out of 5 stars A spectacular cinematographic feast, 23 Nov 2007
This review is from: Baraka [DVD] [1993] (DVD)
This is a very powerful film, which is a visual feast. It portrays without any words both the creative principle as well as the destructive principle of the human spirit. A voyage that in pictures and accompanying music shows a multitudes of cultures, landscapes, religious practices and beliefs that has a profound impact on the viewer. It is both celebratory and sobering at the same time.

Highly recommended and especially on a big screen if possible to get the most from the stunning visuals!

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful film with a very realistic portrayal!, 22 Nov 2007
This is a great movie with a sobering message. The showing in this movie of how Big Pharma uses poor African countries to test run their drugs before potentially releasing them into the West is all to true. The headline in the news today was "Nigeria Takes On Pfizer over 'Killer Drug'" and is just one such example of how close to the truth the film is.

See this movie and be aware that the events portrayed are actually happening. To understand what kind of people would deliberately do such things, read the book "Political Ponerology" by Andrew Lobaczewski and the book by Robert Hare called "Without conscience". It explains a lot that is worth knowing.

The other movie in this double deal "Out of Africa" is another good movie, though I found the book to be better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended!, 22 Nov 2007
It is said that if we don't learn from history we are bound to repeat it. Could it be that the actors journey in this movie shows a little glimpse as to the souls journey if we assume that we have a soul? That we only really graduate once we have learned the lessons that are here on this planet and that otherwise we will just get reincarnated over and over and given another chance at learning.

Initially the character, once he realises that he is "stuck" starts abusing his power and sees how he can fulfill his hedonistic desires by manipulating events and people. As he gets bored with himself and his tricks, he discovers the creative principle, and starts on the journey of serving others and contribute to life and thus he starts learning.

So this movie had a strong effect on me and I rate it highly both because it a highly entertaining movie, which is well acted, but especially because of the deeper layer that is there to be seen.

I would recommend the book "The Secret History of the World and How to Get Out Alive" by Laura Knight-Jadczyk, as it explores in depth the idea that life is a school, where we have the possibility to learn.
