The ancient, noble quest of the archetypal hero was resonated by famous mythologist Joseph Campbell. This film says little about Campbell but quotes his ideas (“find your bliss,” etc.) in a buzzy spray of testimonials, celebrities (Tony Hawk, Mick Fleetwood, Laird Hamilton, Deepak Chopra), film clips (Star Wars, The Wizard of Oz, Superman), and amateurish dramatizations. The plea for self-discovery is gummy with posed smiles, but its wise thoughts might break the crust of complacency for some viewers. 2011.
