Editorial Reviews

The documentary Wake Up follows this fascinating story of an average guy who inexplicably developed the ability to access other dimensions. With his loving but skeptical girlfriend by his side, Jonas crisscrosses the country as he searches for answers and delves deeper into this thrilling world of the phenomenal and spiritual. Wake Up is a call to consciousness to everyone who sees it; an invitation to accept that there is more to this life than meets the eye.

Spiritual journeys can certainly happen to those least expecting it. Here is the perfect example on DVD. I will leave it to other reviewers here to add their insights and accounts, but what is important to me is that Jonas put it on the line, and shared what he was going through, without worrying about image. It's the honesty of his account on film that makes this a special documentary. Through the course of the documentary you will see a tremendous healing, of finally letting go of age old dogmas and attitudes, and joy at the start of a new life. Letting go resistance is at the base of a spiritual journey, and that's so evident in Jonas' honesty.

I also want to share that Jonas' humor adds a special quality that lightens the early journey. After a screening of the documentary he did a Q&A with over 600 in the audience. In reviewing where his journey was currently he mentioned several things, but I think the humor will give you an idea of what to expect in the film. He said he was careful now to avoid limiting or bad attitudes about anything...and in a nutshell, he realizes that all people are actually in the same swimming people, and he doesn't want to be the one peeing in the pool! He was infectiously kind to everyone, and now wise enough to know that everyone asking a question at the Q&A is also himself asking about himself. That showed us his awakening continues after making this film. Isn't that how we make more sense of all the entities that cross our path for a moment or as a family member throughout a lifetime? Indeed.

He said the journey has made him a softer and more loving man. You could sense that especially having seen the first years of his experiences in the documentary.

I like to support spiritual cinema and I would love to see more. Plus, the subject matter is fascinating. For these reasons I would have loved to have given this a great review. The videography, sound, lighting and production is somewhat lacking - which is ok when there are budgetary constraints - and this isn't what warranted the low rating. All of this can take a back seat to content. And I wasn't particularly bothered by how slowly it moved - except, it never went anywhere leaving a very dry and abrupt ending.

The story is about a guy, a normal bloke one day, who wakes up able to see aberrations. Unfortunately, very little is really said about his experiences, which are the most fascinating part of the movie. Instead, the focus of the movie is on the problems it caused him and how it effected his life, most of which involves his fairly self-centered girlfriend. Seriously, at one point you're wondering when he will realize he could do so much better with a more supporting partner?

This is basically a video taken with a hand-held camera following him around as he seeks some answers that never seem to come. (He sees a doctor to rule out a brain tumor...seeks the advice of several spiritual advisers, that sort of thing.) Even this might have worked for me had they at least edited it in the correct timeline. His and his girlfriend's hairstyles go through some radical changes over what appears to be a long stretch of time - perhaps a year or more - making it evident that the scenes are constantly reverting back and forth in a random timeline. This results in the viewer having to mentally sort out the timeline which finally gets so confusing you just don't care any longer.

First of all, i want to thank you Jonas and all the people in your world for creating this excellent movie. It's one of the most real, honest and beautiful explorations I've been blessed with seeing. There is so much about it to admire and recommend to others, I hardly know where to begin.
If you're reading this review for a sense of whether it's worth watching, I can say ABSOLUTELY!
Of course, as a work of art, it is a subjective experience and may not be for everyone. But i loved it.
I'm tempted to go further and say more about it, but like one of the teachers in the film says to Jonas, "keep it simple" and "less is more".
Hopefully the courage of Jonas to document his journey will empower everyone to share their story so more of us will realize that what's happening on a global scale is real. People are waking up to the multi-dimensional nature of Life and in the end, like Jonas discovers, THAT's a very good thing.

Finally a documentary showing what a person on this journey may encounter and that you are not alone. What I enjoyed the most was how sincere the story is and the fear that most people have when confronted with this issue. I was happy to see the part about Mara in Santa Fe and how difficult these journeys can be on relationships. Thank you Jonas and Mara for coming out and sharing your story.

This guy is awesome and he has a great story. I'm glad he shared it. It's about time people do. He takes you on a metaphysical journey that only those who are gifted can experience. You get to see what he experiences first hand in his daily life and the challenges it brings. It's exactly what you or I would do. Then he shows you where he makes peace with his gift. I think this would help others in similar situations.
