What if running could lead to enlightenment? 3100: Run and Become follows an unassuming Finnish paperboy in the Self-Transcendence 3100 Miler - the world's longest race. His story takes the viewer around the world to the Kalahari Desert, the mountain temples of Japan and the Navajo Reservation.
It is rare that such an entertaining movie can also provide a serious dose of enlightening reality. I usually prefer an enjoyable or entertaining movie based on reality, not fictional. When such a movie is produced in a way to also include the elements of a higher consciousness then it truly deserves the highest ranking.
On a more subjective note though, having run the 3100 mile race twice myself, I feel this movie powerfully and accurately captures the essence of the experience on both the physical and spiritual level. It does not compromise the difficulties involved in such a long and arduous quest as it parallels this quest with similar endeavors in other cultures as well. The sense of human aspiration for a higher goal and enlightenment shines through in all aspects of this movie, leaving the viewers spellbound as they leave the theater with a higher inspiration and a refreshing sense hope for a more fulfilling future.
