I edited my first video project over the weekend: Spider-Man 2 with commentary from Jason and Armelle. This sleeper of a metaphysical movie is about a superhero who’s tired of saving people, keep’s pushing away love, and stays isolated by hiding his identity and keeping secrets. OK, I can relate to that story line 😉 Spidey seemingly loses his superpowers and decides he wants to be a normal guy, but even that isn’t the answer. The turning point of the movie comes when he starts expressing to those around him the secrets he’s carried for years. He then finds himself saving a child from a burning building, not as Spider-Man, but as himself. At the end of the movie he opens up to love and still ends up saving people, so in form he still looks the same, but now he has a purpose and zeal he didn’t have at the beginning of the movie.
