You have to see this movie

3 years, 5 months ago

Revolver (2005) by Guy Ritchie.

I’d recommend that you get a little bit familiar with non-duality (Illusion and destruction of the self/Ego etc.) before you watch it. Also, when you’ve watched the first half of the film and you don’t like it, watch the second half, because everything falls into place near the end of the movie (if you’re lucky).

A quote from the movie to wet you appetite:

"There is something about yourself that you don’t know. Something that you will deny even exists, until it’s too late to do anything about it. It’s the only reason you get up in the morning. The only reason you suffer the shitty puss, the blood, the sweat and the tears. This is because you want people to know how good, attractive, generous, funny, wild and clever you really are. Fear or revere me, but please, think I’m special. We share an addiction. We’re approval junkies. We’re all in it for the slap on the back and the gold watch. The hip-hip-hoo-fuckin’ rah. Look at the clever boy with the badge, polishing his trophy. Shine on you crazy diamond, because we’re just monkeys wrapped in suits, begging for the approval of others. "

Sounds like that movie has got it right! I agree with that. We seek approval from other’s constantly. Interacting is one of the things that keeps us sane because we always want to see what another person has to say…to see if they approve of us. I’ll have to watch this some time!

That’s a hell of a quote Ramo :) I’ve never seen–I’ll try to get my hands on it. “We’re just a bunch of monkeys wrapped in suits” reminded me of this video I used to have on my myspace account (wow “myspace” just made me think of tumble weeds ha). This is pretty funny.. and accurate I think:

Awesome movie ramo! At first I thought it was just a shoot-em-up action movie, then the philosophical analogy started to become apparent… you were right about hanging in there through the second half.

I second your recommendation.

I’ll have to check that movie out. Thanks for the suggestion!
I found myself chuckling quite a bit during that video. Not sure why, but the “some of the monkeys pay another monkey to listen to their problems” was really funny to me.

That vid is great Em :)
“The monkeys have so much potential if they would only apply themselves.” This is so true. Making people aware of their true potential is something I’d really love to do with my life.
