The Imitation Game

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

User review

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.

The Fountain

User review

Spanning over one thousand years, and three parallel stories, the Fountain is a story of love, death, spirituality, and the fragility of our existence in this world. It is a love story, but it is also a journey into a man's deep seated belief that death is a disease and his quest to protect the one he loves from it. The Fountain will have you once again believing that romance and love between two people for all eternity is possible and that as long as the human spirit remains strong, anything is possible - even immortality.

Introducing The TribeJanuary 31, 2011

Men: The era of the lone wolf is over. It's time to connect!

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!

American History X

User review

American History X tells the story of Derek Vinyard and his little brother Danny, two brilliant and charismatic brothers based in Venice Beach, California. It is an area that has been overrun with ethnic gangs and when their father is murdered while trying to put out a fire in a black neighborhood, Derek loses himself to hatred and starts a White Supremacy organization with the serpentine Cameron Alexander. This is a movie about the importance of fathers, mentors and brothers as well as the dangers of shadow mentors and gang initiation.
