DMT: The Spirit Molecule
- Great documentary for the entertainment factor. Basically spiritual people trip absolute balls in a laboratory and predictable results occur, interpreted badly. I have no idea how much actual science is represented in the film as it veers off course into mysticism and magic shortly in. There's no balance in the discussion. In fact, in these cheesy little segments where Joe Rogan is in black and white and dressed like an alchemist or something from the 1800's, he asked the viewer to leave objectivity behind while thinking about the subject. Alex Grey: The Hall of Sacred Mirrors
- This one was boring. Some corny artist made a bunch of paintings and talks about them from a new age perspective. He also shares an experience he had while tripping with his wife in bed, which gave me a humorous visual but was just stupid new age talk. The artwork is OK at times, sort of frightening and confusing at others. It's all featured here: http://www.cosm.org/.
I wouldn't mind going there, maybe watch this while I'm there: https://secure.cosm.org/np/clients/cosm/event.jsp?event=530Mana: Beyond Belief
- This was incredibly boring. It starts with some fat guy siting on a rock and talking about all the magic powers and experiences it has had. Some other guy, or woman, I forget, talks about how difficult it is to translate the idea of Mana in Western languages. With no other explanation of what Mana is, it proceeds to just how twenty minutes of various Pacific Islanders going about their day-to-day lives. I suppose the director was trying to convey something, and define the concept of Mana through imagery or some shit. It was just boring and I stopped it. The Mysteries of Angels and Demons
- Kind of amusing for the absurdity. Badly produced, I mean just miserable. It features various experts with made up titles like Demonologist Or Angelic Historian, and they basically just sound like children explaining their favorite video game or cartoon characters to you. I found myself laughing out loud a few times.
