CONSCIOUS CINEMA

synchronistic interactions , these unlikely seekers dive deeply into questions related to the building blocks of reality and the state of human evolution , all with staggering and revelatory ramifications .
Unlike many other films that attempt to tackle subject matter such as this , “ The Wisdom Tree ” succeeds beautifully at weaving its philosophical concepts into the main narrative without being obvious , awkward or intrusive . In doing so , the picture skillfully gets its points across without interrupting the flow of the story or becoming bogged down in jargon or vague platitudes . It also adeptly illustrates the many parallels between scientific and spiritual disciplines , fields of study that are essentially two sides of the same coin and not the antagonistic opposites they ’ ve long been thought to be .
For those seeking answers of their own , this film – though a work of fiction – may nevertheless shed valuable light on finding one ’ s own way . Existence may prove to be far different – and far more incredible – than any of us may have imagined . And “ The Wisdom Tree ” shows us how , entertaining and enlightening us along the way .
