The Book that Continued the Story

Award-winning author Brent Marchant’s second book, Consciously Created Cinema: The Movie Lover’s Guide to the Law of Attraction (ISBN 978-1495976643, 2014), takes a truly inventive approach to a topic that’s both enlightening and entertaining—how the world of film helps to illustrate how we create the world we experience. Expanding upon the concepts introduced in his seminal work, Get the Picture?!: Conscious Creation Goes to the Movies (second edition, ISBN 978-1505570168, 2014), Marchant again draws upon his singular perspective on the subjects of movies and “conscious creation” (also known as “the law of attraction”), offering readers an engaging, practical look at these topics and the complementary relationship between them for explaining how our reality comes into being. By citing examples from genres as diverse as comedies, dramas, science fiction and even documentaries, the author acts as a cinematic tour guide to the mystery and magic of how we manifest our existence.

Consciously Created Cinema earned widespread support from fellow authors and a variety of thought leaders in the film and metaphysics communities. It also received high praise from the judges in the 2016 Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards competition.

What Others Have to Say…

Consciously Created Cinema: The Movie Lover’s Guide to the Law of Attraction by Brent Marchant is an excellent book for those who want to see the deeper meaning behind many popular movies. A fascinating book for cinema lovers and those who want to know more about the Law of Attraction.

The cover is amazing. Very creative. I like the colors and how the eye’s pupil is a camera lens. The back cover copy is excellent. The blurb tells the reader the book’s purpose. The author photo is great, and the author biography tells the reader why Brent Marchant is uniquely qualified to write this book. I like that he also shares where to find him online, and even his email address. I hope he doesn’t get too overwhelmed by his IN box!

Inside, page after page of endorsements really are impressive. I like that the chapters are well laid out, showing the reader which movies are being covered. The reader can choose to read the book in sequence, by the movie, or by the subject such as “Perspective” and “Change.” I thought the entry on “The Social Network” under The Power of Belief was especially good. This is a great book to present as a gift to the movie lover. The unique and thoughtful perspective will be appreciated.

All in all, a great book that skillfully covers the topics. Nice work.

Judges’ Critique
24th Annual Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards

Understanding the world before our eyes requires us to first understand the world behind them, how our thoughts, intents and beliefs function to create the reality we each experience. How we go about that is the subject of Brent Marchant’s inventive new book, Consciously Created Cinema: The Movie Lover’s Guide to the Law of Attraction, which effectively illustrates the process at work through contemporary film. Whether you’re a movie lover looking for inspiring cinema, a truth seeker in search of enlightening examples to follow, or both, you’re sure to find a wealth of useful, perspective-changing ideas in this engaging new book.

If you love movies and have even an inkling of interest in self-awareness and the meaning of your life beyond just simple existence, like I do, then Brent Marchant’s book, Consciously Created Cinema, is an absolute must read and a great reference tool—not only to learn about, and from, movies that matter, but also to learn something deeper and more profound about yourself. Read this book, watch every film he discusses, and I promise you will emerge from the experience a deeper, brighter and better person.

I’m very excited about Consciously Created Cinema. In this enlightening work, Brent Marchant takes us to the movies and, in the process, teaches us how to use the law of attraction to manifest our desires. If you love movies and if you would love to live the life of your dreams, you are going to love this book!

Just as we have the opportunity on an individual level to recognize how the laws of creation are manifesting in our personal lives, Brent is able to brilliantly do so within the construct of the movies. Consciously Created Cinema: The Movie Lover’s Guide to the Law of Attraction provides another tool to empower us in the quest of understanding how we create our reality. The movies and reality have a lot in common as they are both stories we tell ourselves.

In an age of instantly accessible movies, Brent Marchant offers a valuable, articulate and insightful guide to those connected with conscious creation. Marchant’s ability to give the reader a taste of the plot and insight into the underlying reality creating principles makes for a fascinating read and resource. If you want movie reviews that you can use for intelligent entertainment, get this book. Highly recommended.

Brent Marchant has done it again. In Consciously Created Cinema, he shows with great clarity, detail and insight how the tenets of ‘conscious creation’ are one of the most important tools of post-modern storytelling reflected with increasing frequency and depth in contemporary cinema.

I overheard a grownup say once, ‘Well, it depends on how you look at it.’ Fascinated, I turned that over and over in my little boy mind and still couldn’t figure it out. What is it, anyway? Now Brent Marchant comes to my (and our) rescue. As I read his book (go slow, by the way), I realized that I was not only seeing movies I thought I had already seen a long time ago in a new light, I was being helped to see my life in a new light as well. It really does depend on how you look at it, and the it is the joy of feeling like a powerful creator or feeling like a victim.

If you read Brent’s book, as he recommends, in order, you’ll get that he is taking you on a guided meditation, which will help you to internalize the principles of conscious creation, not just read about them. Of course, another joy of this book is that you will discover movies you had never heard of that you’re now desperate to put on your Netflix queue. So you can use this book to change your view of life, or just to read some provocative movie reviews. It all depends on you!

Hooray! A critic who shares his joy and enthusiasm! Not only does Marchant love movies, he has a solid command of the principles of conscious creation. He’s highly skilled in writing about both with insight and humor, which adds up to a uniquely informative and entertaining guide. Check it out before you pop the popcorn!

In Consciously Created Cinema, author Brent Marchant eloquently illustrates how the art of contemporary cinema reflects the subtle concepts and forces (such as the much-touted ‘law of attraction’) that are embroiled in the momentous shift in human development that’s now occurring. By combining his love for the cinematic arts with his profound knowledge of the esoteric and metaphysical literature that describes our shifting mentality, he has produced a book that is both reassuring and motivational for the reader. Collectively, the films profiled in this book can be viewed (metaphorically and literally) as the current state of play in our game of ‘awakening’ to an altogether more altruistic approach to life.

I can literally think of dozens of ways to use Brent Marchant’s creative gem of a book: As a guide for a monthly movie club discussion group; a personal tool for psycho-spiritual development; an ice breaker at parties—the list goes on and on. Build upon the principles step by step as you read through it, or just flip through the pages and let your finger choose tonight’s feature from the lines of probabilities; the opportunities for exploration are indeed endless!

Brent Marchant bestows another gift on cinemaphiles with his 2014 release, Consciously Created Cinema: The Movie Lover’s Guide to the Law of Attraction. As he did for films pre-2007 in Get the Picture: Conscious Creation Goes to the Movies (Moment Point Press, 2007), Marchant covers plot summaries, relevant conscious creation themes and full cinemagraphic details, including notations and major awards, on over 60 movies released 2006-2012. Each chapter opens with a thoughtful examination of a theme, ranging from ‘Faith and Beliefs’ to ‘Integrity’ and ‘Transformation.’ With a thoughtful approach to the many underlying tenets of conscious creation, Consciously Created Cinema provides readers with many insights on how they can learn from the films examined, and, with Marchant’s delightful writing and humor, every movie lover will find something new to ponder about their favorite, or perhaps previously undiscovered, films. Students in film studies will find this title and Marchant’s previous work to be extremely valuable in their research of contemporary films.

Having been in broadcasting for 35 years, I’ve seen a lot of changes, such as the rise of ‘on-demand’ everything. And, in light of that development, to have Consciously Created Cinema: The Movie Lovers Guide to the Law of Attraction available as a resource is absolutely fantastic. To be able to call up any movie from the 13 categories in the book on any of the Internet on-demand services, and then watch something that can inspire, uplift and encourage, is one of the most incredible opportunities each one of us has as a spiritual being on this planet. I can watch what I want when I want and find the kinds of movies that will coincide with my life’s choices and purpose. And, ever since I discontinued cable and satellite services (making me subject to the whims of the networks), I have seen more movies and documentaries that I had never heard of before, films that really opened my eyes to even more ‘new paradigms for a new world.’ So, whether you get this book for yourself or for someone else, what an incredible gift it will be.

Brent Marchant has the brilliant and unique talent of being able to show how films are able to tap into experiences that set examples of what viewers can do to attract the life they desire. His new book, Consciously Created Cinema: The Movie Lover’s Guide to the Law of Attraction, magically draws upon films to explain how probabilities, quantum physics, science and metaphysics are melded to create the reality their characters experience, even when they don’t realize it. His book reveals how it’s about time movies have begun exploring what is really going on in the lives of their characters, conditions that might also be found in the scientific and spiritual, physical and metaphysical realms of viewers. This book may help readers and moviegoers see beyond the cinematic experience and into the next realm, relating how to solve their problems through the use of the law of attraction and the power of imagination.
