Now that I have "Video on Demand" on my new TV, there is no stopping me. I can watch all the newest releases simply by pushing a button, et voila! it's on my screen. I love it, and I have been able to watch a couple of movies that I might not otherwise have chosen. The one I watched the other night is one I had not heard of before, called "Knowing" with Nicolas Cage. I love Nicolas Cage, so I chose the movie just to watch him, and I ended up being mesmerized by this movie. The theme of the movie is a subject of which I have had recurring dreams over the years.
The movie begins 50 years ago in 1959 with a group of school children burying a time capsule containing their ideas and visions of what our world will be like in 2009. When the time capsule is unearthed, one little boy -- Caleb -- is giving a series of chilling predictions that had been placed into the capsule by a little girl 50 years earlier. Caleb's father, John, (Nicolas Cage) is an MIT professor and astrophysicist, and he begins to realize the implications of the 50 year-old predictions.
The movie can be interpreted in a couple of different ways, and I think based on one's philosophical ideas, the indications of the ultimate prediction are very clear. If you have seen the movie, I would be interested to hear how you interpret it. If you haven't seen it, I would recommend you definitely put it on your list.
