fate, free will, and providence
31 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The film portrays a supernatural DJ who "falls" to earth and tries to bring harmony to a complex city scene by modifying nature in modest ways through manipulations of his turntables and mixer.

The identity of the DJ is only hinted at through various symbols which can be interpreted to indicate that he is none other than one of the fallen angels mentioned in various mystical texts.

However, though the film revolves around the DJ and is seen through his eyes, the film is not about the DJ but rather about man and his world. It is about the nature of creation and man's interactions within creation. It is about the interplay between providence an free will.

The film depicts three attempts by the "DJ" to achieve harmonious accord. In the DJ's first attempt, he displays smug confidence that the world functions according to hard-determinism. This approach is found wanting and the "DJ" is forced to refine his approach to account for various human factors, demonstrating the philosophical view that perhaps the world works according to soft-determinism. However, once again, the "DJ" finds that the human condition does not accord with such simplistic definition.

He thus realizes that he must take into a great many factors, including what amounts to all of human history; and even still he must invest himself completely, in what can only be termed "divine providence", to insure the harmonious solution to the city scene.
