What Others Have To Say…
I recently got to know the writing of Brent Marchant, whom I feel in his book, Get the Picture, has written the definitive work on movies that relate to the evolvement and current relevancy of the medium of motion pictures in this era of visionary entertainment.
I am grateful to recommend such a fine work of literary journalism to anyone who wants to explore the art of the story in films and apply it to the process of spiritual awakening in their own lives. In the annals of film essayists, Brent ranks up there with the best in my book, going as far back as James Agee, along with Richard Schickel, Pauline Kael and Leonard Maltin, but relating films and their meaning and importance in a way that no previous writer has done ever before.
As I have written in early essays myself, films reflect social and cultural trends and society’s underpinnings. Many authors, journalists, and critics have acknowledged this aspect of movies, and even spoke of their nature as a primary mythical force concealed as an art form that has the power to shape societal trends, in addition to mass human consciousness. They affect the choices we make and how we see ourselves and even show us potential futures we can choose from to create and then live in.
Brent has done a marvelous job of creating a very comprehensive compendium of the finest examples of visionary films in the last 75 years in his book, and continues to follow new films with great wit and insight in the ‘conscious creation’ genre through ongoing reviews.

Movies and metaphysics are magically intertwined in this guide that takes the reader on a theatrical journey with the author as he dissects pivotal films that have both shaped and described an era. Imagine sitting in a darkened projection room with someone I consider a ‘spiritual Roger Ebert’ as the images flow before you, beckoning you to step into the scenes and explore their meaning. Brent Marchant views movie as metaphor and offers the reader the invitation to become conscious creators, using the film content as more than entertainment, but, in addition, life-enhancing tools.

Brent Marchant brings a refreshing viewpoint to his movie reviews by seeking out the meta-message of each film. He uncovers the often-hidden beliefs, expectations and mindset that draw each character into relationship via their resonant attraction. In so doing, Brent shows us how to look at our own co-creations more lucidly and learn from this cinema verité. Highly recommended!

Brent is the perfect description of ‘balanced’ to me. He recognizes the necessity of having one hand in the real world while constantly striving to bring the spiritual world into practice and being. Brent’s writings are informative, funny and just plain smart. I’ve concocted many story ideas from his observations and hope to benefit from his musings for many years to come!
