Title: Reflection on peaceful warrior
Date of submission
The first thing that came into mind while watching the movie is that I thought it as a sport movie. Later on I discovered it is an inspirational movie that is full of insight. The movie basically revolves around gymnastic although some parts displays half naked and erotic teenagers, it still pass the message that we should surrender chaotic minds and ego if we want to discover ourselves. The movie has personally inspired me.
The movie is simple but one enjoys watching every moment. I had to watch it more than once to carefully note down some of the most important quotes. All the characters played their roles very well. We are able to point out different personalities and lessons from most of them. It is a great movie based on true events of the author. It is full of feeling, excitement, and humor. I really appreciate the movie it has no violence, stereotype, slurs nor biasness like most of the movies.
The movie inspires us not to remain down when knocked down by obstacles but follow our dreams and passion. I would recommend everyone who has not watched it yet to do so. The movie subjects us to suspense; we expected it to end in a heroic style. At the end the screen goes black when we are expecting to see how the judges, coach and fellow sports men are shocked. We are left to speculate on whom Socrates was, was he imaginary? Why did he leave without goodbye or a trace, how did he get up the roof? Did he finally celebrate Danâ€™s victory? Were the judges embarrassed of their initial verdict? These are among many other questions that we were unable to answer.
The movie is not suitable to young children. The main character in the beginning is promiscuous and teens who are struggling to find adventure will most likely collect the message that it is good to sleep with a string of women and end up a hero.
The movie should develop some characters like the parents of most of the campus students including Berkeley, Dan, and Joy. How Joy got to meet and use wisdom learnt from Socrates should have been hinted to us. We should have had the opportunity to celebrate Dan, listen to comments of the fellow sportsmen, judges and coach. We only learn that he got married to Joy through a postscript that appears on the screen, the movie should have developed this theme of love alongside the themes from the beginning of the movie. Joy and Socrates relationship should have been explained, we should be able to know if Joy really knew who Socrates was and his whereabouts.
The movie teaches us that lack of peace and happiness in our current reality is created by fear that causes restlessness. Fear makes a person react to emotions and instead of confronting it we strive to run away from the reality. We should not allow our emotions to drive us. We should have control over our response.
Past experiences and old mentality can be a limitation to an individual. We should not let the past drive us. Leading a happy life is living life at the moment. Our past failures should not hinder us from accomplishing our dreams. Success is within us what we can do and what we cannot do is all in the mind. We should not become victims of limiting beliefs rather we should get rid of all the trash in our mind. The trash is what is limiting us, past failures, fear and ego. The mind is our biggest problem, it wants to maintain its status quo, ...
