This post is just a start, to “kick off” the conversation. We shall brainstorm the best movin picture ever to have been made.
Here are some parameters, I would like to see, in a movin picture:
1) Each shot is either a Jung Mandala, or is part of a sequence, that forms a Jungian mandala.
2) Subliminal messages in the dialogue are all positive affirmations. For example, if the first word in each sentence, or the most emphasized words in a dialogue, form a hidden sentence:
WE don’t APPRECIATE YOU bein here.
Phyllis: WE haven’t seen you in a while, Ted
Glenda: APPRECIATE what we have been goin through.
Ted: YOU got it, Sweetys!
Bible’s stories don’t work as films. For a limited audience they do. Gibson’s film didn’t work, only the publicity worked.
However, Bible’s stories can be narrated within the context of another story, that happens in another period.
The spoof of Terminator and Jesus worked really well to get a few points across, about the common stereotype of Jesus. For me, just showin the story itself would have been less interestin.
It could depend upon what the audience is used to. Folks, who hear Bible’s stories all the time, might be more open to the straight presentation.
Thus, to present a Bible’s story, present a lot of them, and be sure, that they are seen often, and eventually the format will become familiar.
Is the latter true? It would need to be tested.
