Avatar

Thanks to Nick Kimminau of OZA for calling my attention to this article on the movie Avatar, whose storyline is a metaphor for, well, seemingly everything!  It’s a powerful example of co-creation.

As I watched the movie, I interpreted it as a metaphorical statement against the United States’ treatment of Native Americans.   Others see it as a renunciation of the wars against Iraq and Afghanistan.  Others see it as an anti-military polemic.   Others frame it as an environmental movie.  Do a Google search for “Avatar Metaphor” and all sorts of things pop up.

I guess that’s why it is a good movie, above and beyond the special effects.  It has a story that can be interpreted in many ways.
