Movies to rattle your cage & stretch your mind:

  • The Man From Earth (2007)   How might one deal with eternal life on earth?

  • The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008)   What it might be like to be born old & grow younger?

  • The Truman Show (1998)   A man’s life is actually a TV show from birth on.

  • Mindwalk (1990)   Philosophical discussion among a poet, a physicist, & a politician in a surreal landscape engages systemic thinking to consider the realities & problems of life & human survival in the modern era.

  • What Dreams May Come (1998)   Explores the illogic of a heaven & hell existing simultaneously.

  • The Handmaid’s Tale. (1990)   Eerily right-on assessment of the fascist state toward which the U.S., the most religious & violent country in the “developed” West, is heading. Based on a book perceptively written by Torontonian (Canada) Margaret Atwood. Phenomenal cast, superb acting, ghostly real.

  • Religulous. (2008)   Documentary blasts to smithereens the glorified concept of religion with great logic & convincing documentation from around the world. Excellent study of the similarities between all religions.
