Waking Life (2001)

Postby Sabina » Tue May 25, 2010 8:19 pm

The movie "Waking Life" has already been mentioned several times here on Deep Spirits, usually featuring a clip from the movie for discussion.
Having watched it a couple of times, I wholeheartedly recommend it to all deep spirits.

The movie shows the journey of a young man in a unshakable lucid dream-like state, featuring a series of philosophical discussions (or monologues) on various subjects.

It was directed by Richard Linklater.

I enjoyed the movie each time I watched it... a bit surreal which isn't always my thing... While I enjoy surrealism, when done well, I don't always fully understand it... however, I believe this movie doesn't delve too deep into the surrealism to lose a person...

I watched it too, with realization that I have to turn back to it. Each new watching brings some new understanding of many eternal questions and dilemmas we all have.
Good that you recommend it Sabina. It is a movie for deep spirits.
