year 5 day 81

movie: Path of Souls
starring:Adam Beach, Gary Farmer
year: 2012
format:TV Edit

plot: A young widow goes on a road trip with her late husband's best friend in order to complete the research he was doing on Native spirituality when he died.

Wow. This was not what I thought from the commercial at all. It made it seem like it was going to be one of those made for tv style romances where the widow falls in love with the best friend; but dude, so not the case here.  This is best described like a cross between What the Bleep Do We Know?  and The Celestine Prophecy.  You get this massive dose of quantum mysticism, and a small storyline to tie it all together.
I know this isn't listed as a documentary, but there's no mistaking the monologues as the lectures they are as the movie progresses. What starts off as chats about Native traditions in the first half of the movie, quickly turns into science class midway. Once they got to the part where they were in the U.S. after spending the majority of the film traveling across Canada, the story falls away to the pure science of rocks and sound waves and quantum physics.  

what did I learn? There were chunks of this movie that were over my head. I just didn't get a lot of the science
