Some say this science fantasy movie is boring; I think that's because it asks "what if? " Beyond the pretty people and the action, it asks what if we could overcome fear and boredom? What might happen? For ages we've asked how much of life is free will and how much 'fate' as in Romeo and Juliet. Today a popular fateful 'thought' is that someone (else) must be to blame (in Canada it's politicians) But many are looking at it with a twist -- that perhaps stock market crashes and even wars are created for profit by corporate insiders, profiteers.'Aliens', who claim their manipulations are for the best possible outcomes despite waste and suffering. Worse, what if we are letting them do it? Wise Pogo might ask, are we the aliens? This is a fantasy about such horrors, but also about hopeful choices, even for the fearful, lonely, tired and confused. Literally, on a personal level this story is about opening doors to new possibility, new destiny. In this story courageous action overcomes fatalism such as the current popular apathy about elections. Instead, it suggests what can happen despite blame, boredom, disillusionment, fatigue, apathy, greed and conspiracy! It's an allegory about what can happen when we are paying attention, when we are being devoted, honest, and looking at what love is worth. About making the best choices we can, and that somehow these things might be 'heard' by the 'fates'. The scary truth is that all could be lost even if we do blame it all on being tired, lazy and inattentive. But what if courage, determination, and hope were the message, and that somehow WE heard it? (What if they held a war and nobody came, what if they held an election and everybody came? ) What if we looked hard at what we love, and decided to risk everything for that? What if I tried to answer the question "What is your consecration? "
