Welcome to Movie Reviews from a Spiritual Perspective
From a spiritual and conspiracy theory perspective I review all kinds of mainstream movies, TV Shows, documentaries, indie films, and internet films. This blog is not limited to reviewing only "Spiritual" media and I'm especially critical of what is called "Spiritual."
My view on conspiracy theory (now Alternative Researcher):
(March 19th 2013): There is so much bad press around the term "Conspiracy Theorists," but it has been a short-cut to use in explaining where I'm at. I'm now retraining myself to say that I'm in the "Alternative Research Community." This simply means that I research what is being said in the mainstream and in alternative news. Don't take anyone's word for anything. Try to find out what's really going on for yourself! Truth is stranger than fiction, especially when you find out that so much of what you were taught to believe is not real.
Independent film helps to give another perspective on things. And Film Festivals are a way of bringing diverse people together so they can check out their neighbors' points of view in a constructive way. Film can be a beautiful teacher.
My investigation into the various conspiracy theories is not to generate fear, but to enlighten myself intellectually about what is really going on. My goal is for self-empowerment and to understand how we, as a society, have been giving our power away and discovering how we can take back our power and realize that we all have virtually infinite potential and the power to use that potential.
The study of these conspiracies encourages me to think more in terms of what I feel and know is true, rather than always taking the word of some "authority" as truth, no matter who that authority is.
My view on spiritual:
So my idea of spiritual is anything that is truly life affirming and supporting. If I discover that everything I know is now wrong and that shocks me; it also frees me - and that is a spiritual experience to me.
(March 19, 2013) After a year-long sabbatical, I've discovered the most spiritual thing I can do is heal my emotional body and develop emotional freedom. Please see update below.
March 19, 2013 I've returned from taking a year-long sabbatical from film review. After doing some soul-searching to access more of my authentic Self, I discovered (or re-discovered) that emotional healing and emotional freedom is really where it's at. So my reviews will be reflecting those principles.
I'm kicking off my return to film review with the 2013 Arizona International Film Festival. I'm also exploring writing original stories and online publishing. I'll keep you posted.

Yekra is a revolutionary new distribution network for feature films.
“Sirius” is a feature length documentary that follows Dr. Steven Greer – an Emergency Medicine doctor turned UFO/ New Energy researcher – as he struggles to disclose top secret information about classified energy & propulsion techniques. Along the way, Dr. Greer investigates new technology and sheds light on criminal suppression. He accumulates over 100 Government, Military, and Intelligence Community witnesses who testify on record about their first-hand experiences with UFOs and with the cover-up.
In the course of his research Dr. Greer is asked to look at an amazing find: a humanoid specimen, 6 inches long from the Atacama Desert. Not until 2012 was he given permission to take bone samples and DNA from the specimen. At that same time a pre-eminent geneticist, hearing of this find, offered to do DNA testing. He enlisted an MD from the same university,- world renowned for his work with skeletal anomalies, to view the x-rays and CT scans. Their expertise along with Dr. Greer’s expansive knowledge of the subject bring more questions than answers. Where did this “Atacama Humanoid” come from? Are there others like it? What does it say about the origin of the human species?
While on this odyssey, the audience gains a whole new perspective on technology, human evolution, and clandestine organizations who have manipulated and controlled the public for centuries.
