Finding Joe Reviews
If you feel like some powerful "other life" is beckoning you to be bigger than who you know your self to be, this is the movie for you to support you in giving language to that ambition. If you want to play it safe, or feel good about how you sold out years ago on a chance to be something more than just a critic or a hater, than you're probably going to hate this movie and give it a bad review.
On a technical level, the film is beautiful. The cinematography is breath-taking. Each shot was clearly calculated and executed. For a documentary, the resolution is astounding. So it was aesthetically pleasing to watch ‚??Finding Joe.‚?? The running metaphor of a separate narrative was also very clever and well-executed.
On a more personal level, I really connected with the film and its message. It‚??s one of those movies that ignites epiphanies, because everyone can relate to the film‚??s concept. All of the speakers in the film act as mentors and the audience members are mentees. The people in the film expand on Joseph Campbell‚??s philosophies and in doing so relay the message that everyone needs to hear: ‚??Follow your bliss.‚??
Joseph Campbell was an extraordinary man who continues to inspire people and, with the help of this documentary, will continue to inspire people.
