This and That

Stephen Coquet writes:

Sometime after reading your take on Groundhog Day for the first time, I saw Run Lola Run (but being a Snob, I watched it in German, with subtitles). It occurred to me almost immediately that, thematically, this seemed to be a Buddhist film.  Just now I did a Google search, and it seems I wasn’t the only one to notice. Not only that, but some are saying the same thing about The Matrix also.

While I would disagree with that, it’s still worth a look. Just Google “Run Lola Run and Buddhism.”

Just as I never realized Groundhog Day was Buddhist until it was pointed out to me, I saw Lola but did not perceive its similar themes. Now that they are pointed out to me, I see the point.

Why not try a Free Personality Test.
