This film can transform your way of looking at the Tarot.

in my opinion, anyone seriously interested in reading the Tarot cards should see it - preferably more than once. Enrique's performance makes the Tarot come alive with his unique creative approach, inspiring you to do the same. his favorite is the classical Tarot de Marseille, but a similar approach can work with any Tarot deck.

Enrique's approach is active, unique, and refreshing in many ways. I never much cared for the Marseilles deck before seeing the film, but I "get it" now much more than before. He reminds us to let the cards speak for themselves in place and time, and not to get bogged down with memorization. I like that his approach is based in art and motion. He explains how to, essentially, pull on a unique, distinct thread to unravel a story from the tapestry laying before you in the cards. And he does an excellent job with that.

Where he lost me was in kind of "preaching" about what the Tarot is and isn't. In breaking from an approach he perceives as limited and rigid, he's created his own limitations and structure. He doesn't subscribe to the esoteric approach, which is fine. I see where he's coming from. I personally think there is an inherent esoteric, occult aspect to the Tarot. Coming from my background in esoteric occultism, the Tarot is loaded with symbolism and meaning that speaks to me on that level. I think Tarot is all of these things; it is a story, a tool, a cipher, and much more. The tarot is multifaceted. His perspective illuminates one facet.

The film is definitely worth watching. It's a fresh approach that I appreciate, even though I don't agree 100%. But it starts the kind of critical dialogue and debate that we need to keep things interesting and moving forward.

I really enjoyed this film. Enrique considers himself a card reader, but he is really a teacher of awareness. He reminds us to just look at the cards and let them tell us a story without all the vague, esoteric and occult garbage that is so predominant in today's reading practices. He shows us how the cards reflect the real world...in color, in texture, in the people we see and meet. He invites us to really look at our world and be present in the moment. And, the interviews with many of the authors and artists who are involved in the tarot world were fascinating and added a sense of warmth and respect for the man and his craft.

An in-depth look at one of the most original thinking Tarot poets reading the cards today. A unique film and thought-provoking portrait.
