A fascinating insight into the mind of a true inspiration...
20 June 2004 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I had never heard of Joseph Campbell before stumbling across this series on PBS one afternoon. I was immediately absorbed in this penetrating (as deep as Bill Moyers goes) look at the power of myth and it's part in explaining our existence. He has an amazing ability to relate stories to just about any subject or experience, basically off the top of his head.

Imagery, symbolism, psychology, theological philosophy- it's all here in living color from one man in an extended interview that seems to touch on most if not all of the majors man has pondered over the ages. A must see for anyone seriously considering our place under the heavens, amongst the gods.
