I love movies with a weird and wonderful hidden message in them... especially a poetic or philosophical one
(guys this has a great message in it)
(literally panned to the point of near banning)
-Lord of The Rings
(picture the ring as a greed symbol, then remember the line ''the hearts of men are easily corrupted''
Lord of the rings was a commentary on power and corruption from Tolkien's point of view, following the sentiment in "The Republic"
1. The ring is absolute power
2. power absolutely corrupts
3. We see every persona in the movie having a moment of thought when they want the ring.
For those who are wise, they deny to hold any power from the ring... for they prefer who they are now.(the ring corrupts, therefore changes the bearer) Gandalf, Galandriel, and others who deny the ring though understanding its power are shown as the wisest of the plot.
Gollum has the ring for so long that in the end we actually call him 'Gollum'... NOT Smeagol. Though the 'good'/'uncorrupted' side is shown at times, it is minimal because it is now a lesser part of his being.
The ring of 'power' debases all that is good in beings(even frodo and bilbo are corrupted). The entire story is a commentary on this.)
(the moralallity of revenge)
(haven't really understood it, but there must be a meaning of this, like how the universe corrects itself or something)
(lifes sh*t, enjoy it)
-Run Lola Run
(would you do anything for love?)
-Requiem for A Dream
-American History X
-The Wizard of Oz
(represents the tension in the human soul between Home and Away. Plato's triparte division of the soul is represented in the Straw Man, the Tin Man and the Lion, but a sh*t movie)
Also I heard an incredible quote from Yoda once:
Do or do not, there is no try
Dudes if you haven't seen these movies WATCH THEM
I liked 8-mile aswell for its poetic ebb
and speaking of hidden messages... I COULD NOT BELEIVE THIS!
