CE List: Movies With Truth or Consciousness

advertisement - learn more

One the most widely appreciated forms of entertainment is undoubtedly the realm of film and television. Pretty well all of us have seen a number of films and TV shows that have made us either laugh, cry, cheer or even at times leave us contemplating why it was ever made. An element that is not that common in film is to find bits of truth or consciousness, and that’s why we at Collective Evolution have put together a list of some of the films we could think of that could offer you a bit more than simple entertainment. We have also listed a bit (not all) of the truth/ consciousness to look out for when watching the film.


Peaceful Warrior
Gives a great look at the importance of living in the now, and sheds light on the role that the mind can play in clouding your inner guidance. Shows the limitless potential we all carry, while emphasizing that there is more to life than just what we have and what we chase in the form of materials and success. Based on the true story of Dan Millman.

The Matrix
Gives a great representation of exactly what we are to the Elite of the world –batteries. We fuel their entire matrix and designed system. Perhaps even more profound is how this film reveals what it is like to awaken and step out of The Matrix into the real world. Only the minds stories and your ego are what limit you.

What would happen if your government created a medication that stopped you from feeling? This is what is explored in this film and it eerily is accurate to our world and how we have become drones to the system simply going to work and doing tasks not ever feeling what is outside of it. What happens when one breaks free?

Lord of War
Sheds light on the truth behind the arms industry, showing the government’s prominent role in the distribution and sale of weapons. Shows how the government covers up this distribution and uses it to further promote violence and fear throughout the world.

They Live
A very accurate depiction of the Extraterrestrial presence that is ruling our planet. They Live sheds light on how a secret group of reptilian ET’s are at the top of our elite and are creating a frequency on the planet that keeps us all blind from the truth and from seeing who they truly are. It also sheds light on much of the control the Elite has over various structures.

V For Vendetta
Shows some of the corruption in the various levels of government, and how we are kept hidden from the truth. Ultimately also gives glimpses of the intention behind the New World Order, and how all it takes is a collective awakening and refusal to abide to bring an end to their power and control.

Eyes Wide Shut
A look into what Illuminati and masonic rituals are like. This film was modeled after real events. Kubrick’s goal in this film was to expose what was happening with the Elite in this world. Kubrick was apparently killed for the release of this film shortly after approving the final cut that was released in theatres.

La Belle Vert (The Green Beautiful)
Shows the interconnectedness we all share, and how far off the human experience on earth has drifted from that. Focuses on the simplicity and peace that inherently comes from a planet based on love and oneness.

Fight Club
At the end it shows how the complete collapse of the financial and debt structures in place. Which is part of what will be required to shift the consciousness of the planet.  Also shows the role the mind can play, and how easily it can mask itself as our true and only experience.

An awesome movie with a lot of truth in it that is often not seen in film. This movie breaks down what the Ego truly is and how it plays a role in enslaving us. It very accurately depicts the role of the ego and how powerful it can be in this experience. All of this is done with a great story anyone would enjoy.

Shows the government’s ability and desire to easily re-write history and ultimately control everything that we say, think and feel. Also uses a reversal of freedom and love-based words to enforce a heavily controlled reality, where power rests in the hands of few. Also shows how fear alone is enough to keep people not only supporting but in promotion of the system that keeps them enslaved.

Conversations With God
Shows the relationship and connectedness we all have with our inner guidance/ higher self. Also gives a framework for how life naturally falls into place when connected, and how the mind can play a definitive role in disconnecting us from it.

Shows the enslavement of the masses for the benefit of the few, and the desired separation that exists between the two classes. So much so that the enslaved have no understanding of what they are up keeping, and the benefactors have no appreciation or connectedness to those that they benefit from.

Blood Diamond
Sheds light on the corruption and hardship incurred in certain parts of the world to provide unnecessary luxuries to those in the developed world.  Also shows how this truth is controlled and hidden from those who keep the industry intact through praise and value.

A film involving consciousness and how we are all connected as one to each other,  the planet and the animal kingdom. Avatar also has a striking resemblance to the actual reptilian take over of earth. In the films case humans create a hybrid body to mingle and manipulate the Na’vi race much like what has happened here on earth.

The Wizard of Oz
Shows one of the control systems most heavily utilized tactics, which is to blow their control and power out of proportion. Making them seem larger and more powerful then they truly are (the small wizard behind the curtain).

This is a story of a “drop in” which is an Extraterrestrial who takes on a human physicality to have an experience on earth. Prote, the main character, has come from his planet and into a human body to observe and take back information about the experience of earth.

Fire In The Sky
This film is based on a true story of an alien abduction. Not much more needs to be said other than, it’s a true story and many cases like this exist.

Mr. Destiny
A comedic and light-hearted film that introduces the idea of timelines, ultimately showing that as unpleasant as one’s current reality may seem, it is always that which is best for soul growth and experience.

A Scanner Darkly
Featuring some cameo appearances by Alex Jones, this film dives into the drug world and how the government and the very people appointed to stop drug use and sales get caught up in the scene and are often the suppliers.

This film has some great bits of truth in it that involve ETs and light beings who are choosing to assist various individuals in an apocalyptic time with rebuilding a new life on another planet. This was a potential scenario that had dissolved in reality.

Ambition to Meaning
This is a film made by Dr. Wayne Dyer and is based on some of his books. It is a great depiction of 3 different stories that all intertwine with one another. This film is geared towards spreading the message of shifting ones consciousness to create a new and more expanded life.

What Dreams May Come
Sheds light on the fact that we can sometimes create what appears as a periodic afterlife for ourselves based on what we believed while living. We remain in this afterlife until we figure our how to move beyond it and reincarnate again.

Waking Life
Are dreams as real as reality? The film looks at dreams and how they can be as real and full of growth as “real life” is.  This is a good one to reflect upon as it allows us to raise many questions within ourselves about life, the universe and how it all ties together.

  3. I hope anyone reads this: I think the Harry Potter series has A LOT of truth. I think it’s all very symbollic for the journey of life, the ego, love vs evil.. and Ron and Hermione both symbollize our inner selves: the femine part with wits and wisdom, Ron with quickness but worry and pessimism for the most part. However the chosen one or the most powerful part of ourselves is courageous and does what needs to be done.
    Also there is much importance that dumbledore and hagrid play as well as voldemort – in the wisdom they give.
    too much to explain but I think most of you can think back and understand… trust me, I’ve watched them in a backwards order to totally understand its symbollic truths.

    Thank you for reading! :)

      I agree that the story has some beautiful symbolic truths, however the production/creation is beyond blasphemy. Please feel free to check out http://www.whale.to/c/harry_potter_subliminals.html and do your own research into the matter. I have done a lot of research into this and now find it hard to watch many of the movies created. This list however has some wonderful titles in it.

  4. Nosso lar – Brazilian movie describes what hapens after we die…
    Earthsea master – talks about the shadow we all need to embrace in order to become our own masters
    El Buda – Argentinian movie relates the life a of a young man who finds his true vocation in a zen monastery

  5. Robocop (2014) – Depicts how the corporate world and media insidiously shape our reality to support their ends.
    One Flew Over the Cukoo’s Nest – Insinuates that sanity might be only a matter of perspective.
    The Workshop – Explores what it might be like to shed the trappings of your culture and begin developing your individuality over again.
    The Turin Horse – Depicts in metaphor using the bleakest terms, the rat race — that is, the monotonous and repetative lifestyle many humans end up grinding out. Dare we ask ourselves why?
    A Dangerous Method – Explores through the life of famous psychiatrist Carl Jung, the role that acceptance might play in mental wellness.
    The Beaver – Sometimes our lives become something so unlike what we want them to be, that the only way we can go on is to become something unlike ourselves. This movie explores how strange and yet liberating that experience can be.
    Antiviral – This movie explores our cultural addiction to celebrity.
    Sliding Doors – This movie splits into two stories as its main character encounters a critical moment in her life. Which parallel universe is the better life? You decide.
    Scalene – This movie does a very good job of depicting moral grayness and subjective morality. Who was really in the right and who was really in the wrong? Or could you say that from each of the three character’s perspectives, they really all were in the right and couldn’t have made different decisions?
    Upside Down – A surreal, love-conquers-social stratification movie.
    Cube – A rather terrifying account of the potential culminations of systems which operate on a strictly need-to-know basis of information sharing.
    Moon – A sci-fi movie about the average joe worker reclaiming his humanity (I am not just a cog in a money-making machine).
