The Hero’s Journey

Created on Friday, 2 January 2015 12:37

In the early 20th century while studying world mythology, Joseph Campbell discovered a pattern hidden in every story ever told and called it 'The Hero's Journey'. This film, titled 'Finding Joe', is about the ultimate hero's journey: the journey of self-discovery.

As you 'slay dragons and uncover treasures' you may just find that the holy grail you seek is closer than you think – namely, within yourself.

Definitely one to watch.

I AM is an engaging and entertaining non-fiction film that poses two practical questions: what’s wrong with our world, and what can we do to make it better? The filmmaker behind the inquiry is Tom Shadyac, one of Hollywood’s leading comedy practitioners and the creative force behind  “Ace Ventura,” “Liar Liar,” “The Nutty Professor,” and “Bruce Almighty.”  

However, in I AM, Shadyac steps in front of the camera to recount what happened to him after a cycling accident left him completely incapacitated. Though he ultimately recovered, he emerged with a new sense of purpose, determined to share his own awakening to his prior life of excess and greed.

Armed with nothing but his innate curiosity and a small crew to film his adventures, Shadyac set out to investigate how he as an individual, and humanity as a whole, could improve the way we live and walk in the world. On his quest, he met with a variety of thinkers and doers from the worlds of science, philosophy, academia, and faith, such as David Suzuki, Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Desmond Tutu, Lynne McTaggart, Ray Anderson, John Francis, Coleman Barks, and Marc Ian Barasch.

Shadyac appears on-screen as an irrepressible everyman who asks tough questions but offers no easy answers. The result is a fresh, energetic, and life-affirming film that challenges our preconceptions about human behavior, while simultaneously celebrating the unconquerable human spirit.

Editor's note: Since I'm not religious I do not subscribe to the 'turn the other cheek' philosophy that is outlined in this film. I believe that peaceful people who are attacked because of their convictions have a right -an obligation even- to defend themselves and their loved ones. In addition to that I'm not a fan of Obama, but other than these two aforementioned 'flaws' I think the movie is great.
