In-depth review The Imitation Game is a powerful and moving drama about the mathematical genius Alan Turing, the man largely responsible for breaking the Enigma code. Turing, a homosexual, had to live a lie in order to stay at his job. Playing out in a particularly epic and crucial time of human history (World War II), The Imitation Game indirectly puts us face to face with the enormous destructive power of prejudice. It also opens the door to some ominous insights into the archetype of the apocalypse.

Saving private Ryan is a movie about II World War where an american group is ordered to find and get one soldier back home from the terrain of France, since this one soldier's all four brothers had been killed in combat. It is a interesting journey to look on the relationships between the men, and how the archetypal energies show up in this movie, switching side by side. Ultimately this movie is about courage. It is about making your dreams real.

“Our Idiot Brother” is a simple, light story that follows the life of the main character Ned as he enters back into the lives of his three sisters, shakes them up completely, and strolls back out grinning almost all the while. It is a feel good story with a lovely ending and a pretty straight forward set of lessons. For me there it is also a great and deep example of one of the stages of the Authentic Man Program (AMP) holarchy – appreciation.

Why would you want to join The Tribe? I don't know what is true for you, but what is true for me is that my life has seen dramatic improvements as the depth and intensity in my relating with close male friends (Brothers) has increased.
And now I crave that sort of depth in all areas of my life. Once I tasted the soul nutrients of Brotherhood, superficial connections became uninteresting.
If you too want depth and no-bullshit connections with men, join our Facebook group (which replaces our community platform as of March 2016). Welcome!

Philippe Petit is a a man who has taken the masculine calling of living life on the edge a little further than most. It is an August morning in 1974, a slight breeze is felt in the damp summer air, and Philippe is looking into the abyss, his foot resting on the ledge of certain death. He is about to cross the chasm between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, on a line perilously rigged in the black of the Manhattan night. And he is doing it without safety. What lessons are to be found along 70m of near-death experience? Philippe, lead the way...
