Movie Review: Godhead

Godhead is film by Rossana Jeran and our very own David Niall Wilson. Here is the official website for the movie.

From the website:

Synopsis
Godhead is the story of Zero and Magus, two friends who are torn apart by their own imaginations, after they find access to another dimension through a small, glass amulet called a “dragon tear”.

As they continue to delve, again and again, deep into the mystical realm, the dragon tear becomes like a drug. Rapidly, they’re absorbed by this spellbinding, spiritual dimension and the goddess-like entity they encounter there. Fantasy and reality begin to blur, as these rapt, emotional adventures become the center of their lives.

Jealousy, greed and betrayal push their friendship to the brink, because sharing the dragon tear means sharing something else – the intoxicating, beguiling woman on the other side.

Thematically, the film’s subtext examines the human mind then branches out into an array of complex themes that make up and challenge our own spirituality. Woven together with richly imaginative vignettes and visual effects, Godhead not only allows the viewer to experience this dragon tear realm, but to feel the characters’ spiritual and mental predicament first hand.


I enjoyed the movie. The style the film was shot in reminded me of a mix of old Doctor Who episodes and Trainspotting, giving it a very gritty feel that added to the movie’s charm.

With a strong, yet not “in your face message” and engaging characters, this movie could well be on its way to becoming a cult classic. I highly recommend this film to anyone who isn’t afraid to stray away from what is considered “the norm”.

Rating: 5 Stars

Hey James! I can't believe your page loaded for me this time in under ten minutes! I have been trying for almost a week and it has been trying to load for more than ten minutes so I give up. Your page isn't the only doing it , there are a lot of others in my blog roll doing the same. Anyways, I hope all is well with you and you have a good weekend.
