Carl Gustav Jung, the Swiss doctor and psychoanalyst is without a doubt one of the most influential figures of the twentieth century. While his influence may not be easily discerned by the populace at large, his ideas and concepts have become pervasive nonetheless. He is the man who gave us such concepts as: synchronicity, archetypes and the collective unconscious.
The genius of the man was not that he came up with anything new, in fact exactly the opposite is true. He examined the intuitive knowledge of antiquity and the few 'primitive' cultures that still practiced the 'old ways' and simply translated that knowledge into modern day terminology. In other words, he brought ancient occult concepts and beliefs into the modern world. Thanks to the advent of 'Jungian Psychology' the interior landscape of dreams and visions once again became valid, acceptable fields of study after centuries of ridicule and disbelief.
For those who wish to rebel against what I just...
As well as the acclaimed 1985 documentary, this DVD contains the famous 30 minute 1959 BBC "Face to Face" interview, and also some colour film shot in 1951.
The documentary itself consists largely of reminiscences and explanatory insights by many of Jung's former analysands, pupils, friends and colleagues, including the stately Marie-Louise von Franz and Sir Laurens van der Post. There is also some amusing footage of Jung in Africa in the 1920s, and some interviews with the man himself conducted much later in his life.
No-one who has read Jung to any depth will feel short-changed by this DVD. Neither ought those new to Jung feel intimidated - the presentation of the ideas is clear and to the point, without being superficial. It is a marvellous record of the most original genius of the 20th Century.
Carl Jung was the first to formally identify the 'Collective Unconscience' This film is the story of his life and insight. I was mesmerized from the opening credits by the score in combination with the pastural sceen. Jung often spoke of the connection we make to our past and future through the use of symbols. The film has the ability to communicate in the same fashion. After seeing the film I realized film is the only medium for completely conveying the full fabric of Jung's person and message. I wish more films were as complete. Thank you.
