Cinema Esoterica is a podcast about film and the Great Mysteries of the universe. Each episode explores a different movie, from blockbuster to cult favourite. Come for the movie talk, stay for the weird stuff.
#9: The Matrix
The rabbit hole of all rabbit holes. Emma and Ross take the red pill as they examine the intricate layers of this sci-fi thriller. Topics include waking up, walking the spiritual path, the looming threat of AI, and the meaning of synchronicities.
#8: Across the Universe
Ross and Emma tackle this 2007 "British-American jukebox musical romantic drama". Topics include the hidden meanings of the Beatles’ most beloved hits, the Paul-is-dead conspiracy and the dark machinations of the music industry.
#7: The Prestige
From stage magic and illusions to Crowleyian "magick" and extraordinary technology, we consider all the things that challenge our understanding of what is "real" as we unpack this mind-bender of a movie.
#6: Close Encounters of the Third Kind
We revisit the UFO phenomenon as Emma guides us through one of her all-time favourites. Topics include recent news reports, abduction cases, off-planet expeditions and the push for disclosure.
#5: Conspiracy Theory
Strap on your tinfoil hat as we examine the great conspiracies embedded
in this forgotten "rom-com" from the late 90s. Topics include the Deep State,
finding truth in the age of "fake news", and maintaining hope amidst
all the insanity.
#4: Joe Versus the Volcano
We follow Joe Banks (and his luggage) as he finds love on his way to jump into
a volcano. Topics include the metaphysics of the soul, what it means to die,
and the mysteries of Ascension.
