    just watched Stephanie Meyer's 'The Host'... the book was enlightening and the movie was good as far as movies can capture books. maybe i could enjoy the movie because it reawakened the seeds the book planted???
    what's great about it is how it shows us ourselves by slightly changing perspective. i mean through a slight bit of fantasy it shows us reality more clearly, like The Matrix.
    Particularly this shows us how we are souls, or you might even see how we are hosts to our dna, or our soul.
    it also shows the schizophrenia i used to talk about.
    you may even get insight into virgin birth, spontaneous non-linear transmutation...
    all these happened for me reading the book.

    That book was great, unfortunately I haven't been able to snatch the movie yet.

    The Hindu Epic Mahabarata... saw this many years ago, the long 6 hour version in parts.
    Just found this edited version... some good things in this "poem".
    Of course, like the Bible, this is not a story about people (it is and isn't) as much as archetypes
    represented by people.

    Powder (1995)

    Download via Torrent:



    Or watch on YouTube (lower quality):

    It's probably not among the top movies of the 20th century if you're into gourmet cinema - but it looks (to me) like it was almost tailored for some Alchemists, even if it's not directly implied.

    There's nothing 'mystical' or occult in this movie, everything is in plain sight - which can be quite refreshing in the right context.

    So stop whatever you're doing and watch this movie right now

    Yeah I saw it in the cinema recently... nice to see Luc Besson back on form.

    Donít let the delusion of reality confuse you regarding the reality of the illusion.

    Adptation

    Weird film with Nicholas Cage and Meryl Streep...

    Not much to say about this film but watch it

    Stream Vid Here

    Then ask yourself what your script would be like?

    Have you seen Being John Malkovich? If not watch it and then see Adaption again... if you want to go even weirder have a look at:

    Synecdoche, New York

    Donít let the delusion of reality confuse you regarding the reality of the illusion.

    Ignoring the fact that he mentions Newton, tell me he isn't talking about Alchemy ...
