A compelling epic with insightful access into a myriad of human conditions.
1 October 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Echoes of Enlightenment could have easily gotten lost in a maze of contradictions and metaphors. However, the narrative holds the whole script together coherently, and the metaphors add deliberate depth to the stylish visuals.

Interpreting the concept of enlightenment on screen requires the finesse of walking the fine line between proselyting and sentimentality in which Coplan skilfully surpasses. Quite remarkably, Coplan's Echoes coaxes the audience to surrender disbelief and be drawn into a vibrant world of magical realism. We cannot help but recognize a part, if not all, of ourselves in Daniel Geser.

The performance of Daniel Geser is poignantly human; shades of pathos unravelled reminiscing of Martin Sheen in Apocalypse Now! For good measure, there are sexual and violent scenes for universal appeal. Echoes of Enlightenment is an engrossing, post-viewing conversation piece, bridging pop-culture with religious classic.
