Most disappointing film of all time
21 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First - if you haven't read any of Joseph Campbell's books or listened to his lectures or interviews with him, consider yourself fortunate. And this is because you will be able to discover one of the great minds of our time. He clarifies much of the mysteries of life and our world by explaining. For the past 30 years, he has been the most influential person in my life. And the best part is he opens door that you can choose to walk through or not.

Second - when I first heard about this film, I was excited but within a few minutes of the opening I knew it was shallow and just another one of the "you can be anything you want to be in life" commercials that Madison Avenue and others throw our way when the reality of "the hero" and their journey is quite complicated and mysterious. Wrapping it up in a nice little bow of positive psychology like The Secret, using people dressed up as comic boy heroes and famous people telling you that you can do exactly what they did, is weak.

I can understand how someone would want to make a film about the teachings of Campbell and the Hero but this is a horrible movie about a great man and subject. There's hundreds of hours of interviews and more and highly recommend NOT watching this.

If you haven't seen Campbell's interview with Bill Moyers, start there.
