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.

"Umizaru" - (Japanese for Sea Monkeys the slang for the Japanese Coast Guard) is the story of 14 young Japan Coast Guard officers who take part in a tough training to become rescue divers. The film takes us through their 50-day training. Senzaki is one of the top recruits and he is paired with the most unlikely candidate of the 13 other recruits; Kudo. With his love for the ocean and diving, work as a rescue diver at sea seemed like the perfect occupation for Senzaki. His journey from cynicism to become a better man takes us through finding and loosing a buddy - to finding a community to belong in. It is an amazing and emotional journey for us all.
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!
