Though entertaining, Get the Picture has its own brand of philosophy. Early on, while discussing the movie "A Beautiful Mind", Brent Marchant credits Jane Roberts and Seth with that unique view of reality when he mentions probable selves and probable realities. What better way to demonstrate how conscious creation really works, than by example. The author examines in depth more than sixty movies and shows us how the characters' feats and pitfalls illuminate the underlying thoughts and beliefs that have created them in the first place. A wonderful read and a movie lover's delight!

Format: Paperback
I recently got to know the writings of Brent Marchant, whom I feel in his book "Get the Picture", has written the definitive work on movies that relate to the evolvement and current relevancy of the medium of motion pictures in this era of visionary entertainment.

I liked the book so much, I invited him as a guest on my talk show, "Spirit of Film: Converations", and you can find the interview at[...]

I am grateful to recommend such a fine work of literary journalism to anyone who wants to explore the art of the story in films and apply it to the process of spiritual awakening in their own lives. In the annals of film essayists, Brent ranks up there with the best in my book; going as far back as James Agee; along with Robert Schickel, Pauline Kael, and Leonard Maltin - but relating films and their meaning and importance in a way that no previous writer has done ever before.

As I have written in early essays myself, films reflect social and cultural trends and society's underpinnings. Many authors, journalists, and critics have acknowledged this aspect of movies, and even spoke of their nature as a primary mythical force concealed as an art form that has the power to shape societal trends - in addition to mass human consciousness. They affect the choices we make and how we see ourselves and even show us potential futures we can choose from to create and then live in.

Brent has done a marvelous job of creating a very comprehensive compendium of the finest examples of visionary films in the last 75 years in his book, and continues to follow new films with great wit and insight in the "conscious creation" genre through ongoing reviews.

Format: Paperback
Nothing short of pleasurable! Marchant has a sharp and studied eye for the cinema, and his lists of titles in this examination of movies from the conscious creation perspective reads like a who's who of best flicks, making his presentation quite palatable. I wanted to immediately set up a wishlist (and will, through my local library) for virtually every film mentioned! I particularly enjoyed the chapters covering the themes of "Self-Actualized Cinema", "Storming the Castle", and "Connecting the Dots". Though there are a few tough to find titles scattered throughout, a vast majority are readily available. Even with little experience and knowledge of the conscious creation movement made popular through the writings of Jane Roberts and Seth, it was not difficult to understand the connections the author makes with their teachings, and its relevance to the analysis of movies included in Get The Picture. Marchant is a wonderful writer, and he shines as a film critic and reviewer. Includes endnotes and an index.

Format: Paperback
I had always loved going to the movies and then analyzing them from a psychological prespective. However, my current worldview is a metaphysical perspective of the world. Brent Marchant's book, "Get the Picture: Conscious Creation Goes to The Movies" is a great stimulator of thought on both movies and some of the concepts involved in reality creation in our lives.

I often have been in need of examples of metaphysical concepts, in order to grasp events in my own life. Marchant's book helps to show us how movies can aide us in our personal quests. The wonderful news is, we no longer have to read dry or abstract writings to learn, we can simply buy some popcorn and go to the movies! Marchant's writing is clear, witty, personal and delightful to read.

Format: Paperback
Brent Marchant's creative and In-Sight-Full book, 'Get the Picture': Conscious Creation Goes to the Movies is a timely masterpiece, during rare and organic transformation of Earth and this tract of humanity, foretold long ago by many indigenous cultures and acknowledged by new science. Brent's book invites readers to re-frame going to the movies, as well as re-frame how you view people, events and circumstances on the movie screen of life each moment!

I suggest that Brent's book is an inspiration and resource that belongs in our schools, to help students positively influence outer world reality at a younger age, by transforming our human inner world of limiting beliefs, thoughts and patterns handed down generation after generation with few asking 'Whose truth is this anyway?', by owning the consequences of our choices which ends the blame game, and by understanding how our responses moment to moment magnetize our next experience.

Brent's book illustrates in brilliant and unique ways, what took decades to unveil for me and others. Consider this book a road map to positively influence life 'BY' you rather than life happening to you by default. Go ahead! Get the book, some munchies, a drink and consciously go to the movies unveiled in Brent's book, to get a clearer picture about you and your journey through the mystery of life!
