|A screenshot of Episode 2 of 'The Power of Myth' series|
When I saw Joseph Campbell surrounded by masks on the Netflix page I couldn't help but think of the cover of Jacques Vallee's book 'Passport to Magonia: From Folklore to Flying Saucers'.
So one of those dates must be a myth:-)
But let me spell it out for you with a series of shots from the show and see if it doesn't bring a smile to your face when you think of Strieber's tale of his reluctant romp with the alien.
And then Bill Moyers asks Joe about the bar scene and Campbell says it was his favourite scene in 'Star Wars'.
|Reminds me of Strieber's 'Wolfen' for some reason:-)|
|Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977)|
|Richard Dreyfuss in Close Encounters of the Third Kind|
'The Power of Myth' if you get the chance.
I also like how in a lot of old paintings used on the show that God is depicted in clouds (thought clouds?) and what looks like coming out of a human brain.
