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.

'9' is a handmade burlap doll that springs to life at the start of the movie. We soon meet '1' to '8' as we see him discover a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by a war between mankind and machines. He holds a small device that is the key to the salvation of mankind and we see him discover something that unites all the dolls as we witness them owning up to consequences (seen and unforeseen), whilst making sacrifices, experiencing resurrection and the birth of hope. A great film that is rich in symbols and meaning - it will have something to say to you.
Welcome to the TribeMarch 7, 2016
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!

This documentary is a portrait of Buddhist abbot Phra Khru Bah and his life with his young novices. From his home base Golden Horse Monastery, the former kickboxer travels the hill tribe villages under his care in the drug-infested Golden Triangle, dispensing buddhadharma and his own brand of tough love. On his travels, malnourished and troubled village boys with no future enter his fold and become resourceful and self-confident young men. This is a beautiful and intimate portrait of one man's calling to transform tormented boys into men who serve the world.
