I bought some curtains from a company, who decided that since I was interested in thermal curtains I must be interested in spiritually uplifting movies. I can't very well argue with that kind of logic, mainly because it escapes me. In any event, I've got this thing, which came as a "free gift" and encouraged me to subscribe to lots more of the same. It contains three short movies, from 3 minutes to 12 minutes, and one feature film at 89 minutes.
I haven't watched the silly thing, and I'm not going to, but here are the descriptions from the little folder that comes with the disc:
Help Wanted: "Ramon has fallen into a daily rouotine with his business, his home, and his wife and child. He takes for granted the things he worked so hard to achieve and lives as though life owes him something, but he doesn't quite remember what that is. Until one day, a unique young man enters his world, turning his assumptions and beliefs upside down. Couldn't we all use a little reminder about the beauty and possibility in our lives?"
Yogin: "This animated short introduces us to two yogis who are having an unenlightened competition while they twist and turn their bodies into ancient poses designed to create balance and harmony within. Hmmm, perhaps they are missing the point?"
Hummingbird: "Donya is letting the critical voice in her head get to her. How is she supposed to get anywhere in the music business when she's too old and has obviously missed the boat? What does talent have to do with our dreams anyway? You're about to find out in this sweet, short film written and directed by the screenwriter of Conversations With God."
Taos: "John Wahlberg is a fast-track lawyer in the prime of his life when he takes a trip to join his girlfriend for a family vacation to Aspen. When his car breaks doen stranding him in Taos, New Mexico, he has an opportunity to take a moment to review his life. What he discovers will take more than a night in the mountains tosolve, but once he sees the light, clearly there's no turning back."
I haven't played this, though I did remove the disc from its "revolutionary DVD case" in order to scan it. Said case "features a 100% recycled pulp paper tray." Sounded great, until I tried to remove the disc. You'll want to be careful, because it seems to me as if it would be easy to damage the disc in the process. That sucker just doesn't want to come out, though it will if you're patient.
If you like spiritually uplifting movies, Spiritual Cinema, or circles for all I know, you might like this.
