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.

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.
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!

Beowulf is the stuff of legends. Set in a world that is no more, where heroes battle dragons, and fair maidens sing tales of adventure, one hero faces the greatest challenge of his life when a sexy and seductive she-demon, the mother of the beast Grendel that he came to Denmark to slay, sets her eyes on him. This movie is about the enormous power the dark Feminine holds over the man who has not yet fully dedicated his life to service of his people, and the vulnerabilities of the hero archetype. Enjoy!
