Product Description

Actress Susan Sarandon narrates this visually-provocative documentary based upon New York Times best-selling author Dan Burstein's book "Secrets of the Code," which takes a look at the controversy surrounding the best-selling book and blockbuster film "The Da Vinci Code." Secrets of the Code is a sweeping exploration of some of the world's greatest mysteries. This feature-length documentary includes interviews and commentary by renowned scholars, theologians, scientists and historians, including Timothy Freke, Richard Leigh, Sean Martin and Elaine Pagels. Burstein's book - and now the film - explores the global obsession inspired by Dan Brown's phenomenally successful novel The Da Vinci Code, the fastest selling adult novel in the history of publishing. Secrets of the Code film takes a provocative look at the controversy surrounding Brown's novel examining the importance of religion in today's world, and is a sweeping tour of the mysteries surrounding the ancient signs and symbols, t

Secrets of the Code is one of the better documentaries obviously basking in the glow of Dan Brown's mega-success with his novel The Da Vinci Code. Narrated by Susan Sarandon and featuring some of the most ubiquitous experts within the mini-industry of videos examining The Da Vinci Code from a number of angles, Secrets first offers a brisk re-introduction to the major thesis in Brown's story, i.e., that Jesus Christ had descendants through his wife, Mary Magdalene, and the Holy Grail is not a cup but rather the Jesus-Mary bloodline. From there, Secrets goes on a hunt for ancient signs (the Glastonbury Tor, cave art) that the sacred feminine was once paramount in the thoughts of men and women, and claims that crucial to the foundation of all religions--including Christianity at its deepest roots--is the mystery of procreation. The great variety of ideas and beliefs among early Christians is also touched upon in Secrets, especially the alternative views of Gnostic Christians. There's also the whole sordid history of Magdalene's demotion from tactit apostle to prostitute in the Catholic church. Da Vinci’s "The Last Supper" gets yet another look, and the same debate about whether the figure to Christ’s left is St. James or Magdalene is invoked again. If this all sounds familiar, there are some noteworthy sub-topics here, too, including the attributes of pagan gods that were ascribed to Jesus long after his death (making him something of a superhero) and a section on a fascinating, modern-day Magdalene cult that goes on annual pilgrimages and believes that Mary was actually Christ’s teacher on the subject of the divine. --Tom Keogh

This film / documentary has an excellent viewpoint - which is that everyone has a viewpoint (story). There are many viewpoints here.
I particularly liked the introduction by Susan Sarandon.
The Da Vinci Code was a good story. It may not be "history" - but does raise interesting questions. People can check out the "facts." Secrets of the Code will increase the conversation.
I think many philosophers and mystics would agree --
Everything is a story --- Even God.

After I watched the video it brought into focus some of the inconsistencies that have surrounded Dan Browns book.
It certainly left some things to think about.

Some people might be put off by the beginning but there are some interesting points later on.
Not as informative as hoped.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great program April 20, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Susan Sarandon has a nice voice and the program is very well done and I remember seeing it when it first came out and since the price point of the DVD was good I picked it up. I purchased the Blu Ray version of Davinci Code and got my interest up again in the back story in more detail. It is not just one sided and is objective with the subject and thats the only way to be.
