The Da Vinci Code movie was fairly widely panned. The plot was labyrinthian, the acting a bit wooden. (Sorry, Tom.)
But I think it is an important movie about the movement and direction of the culture. Maybe not a successful movie, but it is headed in the right direction. Tom Hanks, Professor of Symbology, opens the movie up reading a book entitled, Secrets of the Sacred Feminine. Whoa. Has this guy been reading Jung or something?
And a Professor of Symbology? Is there really such a thing? When have we ever seen one of those before in a movie? You mean symbolism might be something important? Enough so that Dr. Symbology assumes the leading role?
A number of Jungians believe that this journey of the finding of the sacred feminine is exactly where we are in the culture — awaiting the Second Coming — and this time it will be in feminine form. Jesus married to Mary? Sounds like we are getting there.
