We’re takin’ over We have the truth This is the mission to see it through –“We Are Here To Change The World” (not to be confused with “We Are The World”)
Technically, the 1986 3D sci-fi production Captain EO is not a movie. Rather, it’s a 17-minute Michael Jackson video that just happens to be directed by Francis Ford Coppola, co-written by George Lucas, and shown exclusively at the Disney theme parks. (Now there’s a rather interesting combination of factors!)
Hi, I’m being blackmailed into robbing the Vatican by a psychotic American corporation and the C.I.A..
My name is Kit Kat
This is not a dream
1991’s Hudson Hawk is pretty much an unbearable vanity project specifically created to showcase the wit and wisdom of Bruce Willis (who is pretty much neck-in-neck with Nic Cage for most hit/bomb/hit/bomb cinematic track-record).
But the film also strangely shares certain esoteric resonances with 2006’s Da Vinci Code. Let’s explore a few, segueing into one of my favorite obscure movie characters, Kit Kat!
Prepare to have your world-view, your religious identification, and even your very perception of reality altered forever—all through this seemingly insignificant 2013 movie starring Steve Carell and Jim Carrey. We’re gonna talk Simon Magus, we’re gonna talk alchemy, we’re gonna talk psychedelic plants…it’s gonna be wild. Really.
“Everything is reversed and backwards. The tiny religious medals of my grandmother—it’s a female Jesus and a slyly smiling Virgin Mary. The construction of all these backward things, these reversals, is by Alice. A very powerful being who can effect reversals in reality. ‘Reversal Alice.’ Clear image of a tall, Mediterranean-looking long brown hair, olive skinned, slim-waisted girl with Byzantine features but modern dress. She had an upside-down heart hanging from a necklace.”

“Specifically, though, I am told to cool it re Christ’s feminine nature.”
—Philip K. Dick, “Exegesis”
The dream that starts off this post was one of the most primal, archetypal, and possibly “controversial” I’ve had in my life. It features a character that has walked through a few of my dreams over the years: Reversal Alice. And she can, as this dream describes, “effect reversals in reality.”
There is a term in dream-study called Big Dreams: these aren’t like kinda sketchy super-symbolic vague wisps of dreams, nor are they nightmare-filled anxiety dreams, or even yummy sort of wish-fulfilling dreams. No, Big Dreams are, as it the name suggests, BIG DREAMS. Archetypal dreams. Dreams that change your life. Dreams that you sometimes can bring back to the village and maybe tell the others over a fire or perhaps turn into a video game or something.
