Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Movie fans and spiritual seekers, unite! In Cinema Nirvana, meditation teacher and award-winning film critic Dean Sluyter illuminates the hidden enlightenment teachings of Casablanca, Jaws, The Graduate, The Godfather, Memento, and ten other classic films, revealing spiritual wisdom in everything from 007s secret weapons to the colors of the Seven Dwarfs eyes.

So grab your popcorn, sit back, and prepare to have your mind opened. Cinema Nirvana is a funny but wise, practical but wildly entertaining guide to finding enlightenment—one movie at a time.

Book News Annotation:

According to this meditation teacher/former film critic, enlightenment in today's postliterate world can come from films as well as from traditional Buddhist practices. From 15 movies including Disney and Marx Brothers classics, Sluyter draws cosmic insights. E.g., A Night at the Opera offers messages about the illusions of reality and the need for serious laughter.
