The movie "Doctor Strange"
I didn't see any posts regarding the new film "Doctor Strange", I didn't expect to see any such posts, but I'm still wondering whether anyone in the Thelemic (or Magickal) community who had seen this film. It's been quite popular here in the U.S. and I think it's quite refreshing to see a film about Mysticism that doesn't have blatant references to Mysticism as Satanism. I saw this film twice and I enjoyed it very much. The GCI in the film is excellent. What are your thoughts in regard to this film?
I haven't seen this film as of yet but like the character & it's definitely on the horizon. I have, however, listened to an episode of one of my favourite podcasts dedicated to this particular subject, which is called 'The Hermetic Hour' with the inimitable Poke Runyan. Poke will, no doubt, be familiar to many here as he is something of a Living Legend amongst many in these circles. Though not a Thelemite, his Order(s) cross over quite well with AC's students. He is in his 80's & his podcast has 300+ episodes. A fantastic resource:
I have heard good things about this movie, and intend to see it. Sounds like a fun bit of entertainment, but I'm not expecting any deep mystical revelations!
"Doctor Strange" is now available for purchase on Blu Ray and DVD, so now you can watch the film in the privacy and comfort of your very own home. Enjoy!
