All movies are metaphors; movies are our myth makers. And myths come with message on all levels: gross to spiritual. But there has to be a subliminal message that is universal or we can’t relate to the movie. The content of the movie is particular and objective; but we relate to the movie subjectively and universally, because as viewers we are all One. The movie does not address a million separate minds; the movie talks to One Mind that has many faces. And the One Mind as One Spirit, so the subliminal message, the carrier wave of the move is unconscious, while the superficial message, which is the particular content, the historical content, is relevant. The movie as metaphor unites the universal and the particular.
