People v. the State of Illusion
is a docu-drama created by former attorney, Austin Vickers
, who is now an executive leadership training expert.
The movie is set in a prison and asks the question, "Can people really change?" The drama centers around a person's perception of life and how it effects the events and relationships around him.
Some of my favorite people are also in the movie, Dr. Joe Dispenza
and Dr. Candace Pert
, who were both in my favorite movie, What the Bleep Do We Know
, as well as Thomas Moore
, author of the book, Care of the Sou
l. The only reason I went to see the movie is because Dr. Joe Dispenza was doing a Q&A after the show.
What I like about the movie is that it presents some well know concepts in the form of a story to which some people may be attracted. It is saying the same message that What the Bleep
said just with different words; simpler words - we are the creator of our reality. Our perception shapes our attitudes and our attitudes effect our relationships, our jobs, our successes, our failure . . .
It's not a movie that I was attracted to seeing and my intuition was right. I didn't like it. Even though it has the same message that I try to drive home to my clients, it was too dark and cheesy for my taste. Keep in mind that I'm the person who doesn't watch or listen to anything aggressive or violent. At dinner after the movie, a friend was commenting that she felt physical anxiety during the film. "Of course you did
," I thought. "It was the energy of the movie.
" Another friend loved it and saw it twice.
So I'm not a good critic or judge of whether People v. the State of Illusion
is good or not. I recommended that some clients watch, What the Bleep, Down the Rabbit Hole
, a movie that I love and still watch. Half of those people didn't like it, most of them didn't understand it and half of them did - all for different reasons.
See! It's all a matter of perception . . .
