Inspiring series and movies

Sometimes instead of new techniques or life changing information all I need to keep the Magick machine going is some good old inspiration. I thought it would be a fun idea to share series and movies that inspire us from a non-ordinary realty point of view, it doesn’t have to be realistic or “real”, it just needs to trigger that “Ohwww” effect, if you know what I mean. We can skip the obvious things like the Matrix or Inception as far as I’m concerned :slight_smile:

I’ll start:

The lost room
I heard about this short mini-series in another topic here, not sure who gave me the heads up but I’m glad he did. If you’re into dreaming and astral projection you’ll find plenty of concepts that resonate and might give you an idea or two, even better is that the story and acting is pretty good as well. The only downside is that there are only 6 episodes.

From dusk till dawn (the Netflix series)
While I initially expected very little from this series and at first thought I was going to get just that, things started to interest me when one of the characters started having visions instigated by an unnatural woman who was slowly pulling him into her world. Later on the series started to have a bunch of dream references which I always love of course. While the series is decently acted and the sets are great the early episodes seem to have been made on less budget than the latter ones, so if unrealistic demons bother you it eventually does get better.

Demon magicians
If you want a good laugh yet end up scratching your head as to how some of this stuff is done have a look at this “reveal” on Youtube. Obviously the creator of the series Xendrius sees more demons than Koetting and all of us combined and yet some of the street magic is a lot of fun to watch. The Asian guy is especially impressive and logic defying, I think he’s in the third episode but might be wrong.

The Lost Room was so good! There is a sequel in comic book form, hopefully they will make it into a movie one day.

An indie time travel film made on a budget of 7k. Just brilliant.

Casey Jones fan film
WOW! This one is incredible. They even got the guy who did the voice of Michaelangello from the first turtles movie. The violence is exquisite. only 35 mins long, you have to see this one.

Primer was very interesting, rather slow paced though :slight_smile: Still need to check the last episode of the Lost Room, have to admit that a comic book sequel doesn’t sound all that hot to me, but who knows it might rekindle interest and lead to a new series.

“Wild Wild Country” on Netflix. I saw this pop up a day or so ago and had to immediately binge the whole 6 1/2 hour documentary series about the fascinating true story of Bhagwan and his Sanyassins. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hBLS_OM6Puk


While my actual source of inspiration were the comics, its cool to see a decently accurate version on tv
