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.

Garden State is the story of a young man’s return home to his place of childhood for his mother’s funeral after many years. Coming home offers him a chance to resolve issues from his childhood, find forgiveness, reopen to feeling again and finally discover love. Garden State is a beautiful story of reawakening and a great analogy for the experience that we must all go through on our journey into the joy, love and peace that is our birthright.
Introducing The TribeJanuary 31, 2011
I'm excited to invite you to the new part of the Masculinity Movies website - The Masculinity Movies Tribe.
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. Truth-telling is my new hobby. Once I went there, it's so uninspiring to turn back to trivial and mundane conversations (not that I mind superficial conversation, it's just that I want that edge BAD).
So I'm excited to invite you to join the growing Tribe, to practice honing that edge and to see if my experience will also be yours. It will take some time to build the energy, but in the end I think it will kick serious ass. Welcome!

Lars is a 27-year old misfit who lives alone in a garage and mostly keeps to himself. His mother died while giving birth to him, his father kept to himself, and now, relating with humans is fraught with danger. To overcome his challenges, Lars orders a plastic girlfriend from the Internet and pretends that she is real. This is a moving story about the goodness in human beings and the power of symbols, love and compassion as healing agents. And if you look closely, you'll find clues to the importance of being initiated into manhood, the sacred ritual our culture lost.
