Everyone's comments are thoughtful and articulate but everyone stays "on message" so steadfastly that no dialogue ever ensues. It's 20 people giving the same lecture.
Solomon's approach places didacticism over revelation. The film is weighed down by a barrage of declarations from zealots in which wisdom is intertwined with the self-evident and platitudinous.
Nicely shot and edited but generally employs a standard "talking heads" approach and lectures more than it engages. It is strongest whenever it quotes (Joseph) Campbell directly.
A multidimensional film featuring commentaries from writers and filmmakers on how Joseph Campbell's hero's journey finds expression in our lives.
