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.

THIS ARTICLE NOW FEATURES OVER 85 READER SUGGESTIONS IN ADDITION TO THE 24 FILMS FEATURED IN THE MAIN CONTENT OF THE ARTICLE!

--> Our Journalism Is Moving - Our investigative journalism and reporting is moving to our new brand called The Pulse. Click here to stay informed.

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.

Equilibrium
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.

advertisement - learn more

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 Verte / Beautiful Green
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.

Revolver
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.

1984
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.

Metropolis
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.

Avatar
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).

K-PAX
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.

Knowing
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: Finding Your Life’s Purposes
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.

10 Great Conscious Films Of 2020 – If You’re Looking For A Good Film To Watch

8 minute read

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Finding a film that is both conscious and entertaining isn't always the easiest thing to do. Here is a great list to keep you entertained in a healthy way in 2020.

  • Reflect On:

    How do I feel after watching each of these films? Who else might benefit from watching them?

Before you begin...

What makes a film conscious and what makes a film entertaining are not always the same thing.

As the Founding Director of the Tribeca Film Festival, former Head of Content for GAIAMTV (Gaia), and now Founder and CEO of CGood TV and Conscious Good, I’ve always been on the pulse of consciousness elevating entertainment.

Placing a high value on both consciousness and entertainment in film, my team and I have chosen 10 films from 2020 that we would like to share with the Collective Evolution community to act as your guide this holiday season and beyond.

1. Sing-Me-A-Song

Sing Me a Song, the new feature from acclaimed documentary filmmaker Thomas Balmès (Babies, Happiness), follows Peyangki, a young monk living in a rural monastery in Bhutan. When TV and the Internet come to the remote country, Peyangki is lured by the power of smartphones, which now compete with the rituals of monastery life. Unexpected and profound, Peyangki’s journey challenges us to reassess our own perceptions of relatedness and self-worth in an age of unparalleled connectivity. As highlighted by Courtney Howard from her Variety review, “Thomas Balmès’ profound documentary explores the ripple-effect ramifications of a seemingly positive invention perverting an unspoiled community.” We are compelled to wonder if technology has really made us more evolved or perhaps it’s the other way around?

WHERE TO WATCH IT: On CGOOD TV from January 14th-30th 2021

2. The ReUnited States

The Reunited States is a hopeful and deftly crafted documentary that follows several individuals who are committed to finding ways to heal the deep divide within our country. The filmmaker, Ben Rekhi, respectfully shares the hearts, souls and stories of these individuals, true American heroes.  A few of the people profiled include Susan Bro, who lost her daughter when a car drove through a crowd in Charlottesville; Steven Olikara, the founder of the Millenial Action Project, a bipartisan coalition of 1,500 young lawmakers; Greg Orman, an independent politician who ran for Governor of Kansas in 2018; 

and David and Erin Leaverton, a Republican couple who travel to all fifty states in an RV to find out what divides us.  As we usher in a new year and a new President, this is an ideal film to enjoy and share with family and friends who may have differing world views.

WHERE TO WATCH IT: iTunes and Amazon on February 9th 2021 – Watch Q&A with the filmmakers HERE

3. My Octopus Teacher

South African naturalist, Craig Foster closely follows a female octopus for a year and the result is nothing short of astonishing.  We witness Foster’s obsession with his shape-shifting muse through a personal narrative that evokes a love-letter.  Through his eyes, we don’t just witness the life of this other-worldly creature, but become emotionally involved with her in a way that elevates the film from a scientific exploration to a completely immersive experience.  Co-director James Reed ponders this emerging kind of nature documentary: “Hopefully the lesson is that, actually, everywhere you turn there are complex personalities in nature that just haven’t been documented yet.”  What March of the Penguins did for the penguin – igniting a worldwide love fest – this film does for the octopus.  Fall in love with your new favorite.

WHERE TO WATCH IT: Netflix

4. The Secret: Dare To Dream

Starring Katie Holmes (Miranda Wells) and Josh Lucas (Bray Johnson), “The Secret: Dare to Dream” is inspired by the phenomenally successful 2006 book, “The Secret”, by Rhonda Byrne.  Like the book, the film is infused with the principles of the Laws of Attraction.  Without spoilers, the two main characters literally crash into each other in a minor fender bender, setting up a chain of events that involve a storm, a missing message, personal transformation, romance and humor.  Throughout the film, the enigmatic Bray’s musings on life echo the philosophy of Byrne’s book. The lesson is that in learning how to turn off automatic patterns of thought our minds become open to new and more empowering ways of thinking.  As Bray says, “we have to be careful because we get what we expect”, and therein lies the ‘secret’ to happiness.  Ultimately, this family film is a feel-good love story that draws you in and will warm even the coldest of hearts.

WHERE TO WATCH IT: Amazon Prime

5. Kiss The Ground

Kiss the Ground is a full-length documentary narrated by Woody Harrelson that sheds light on an “new, old approach” to farming called “regenerative agriculture” that has the potential to balance our climate, replenish our vast water supplies, and feed the world. This film comes to us at a time when the health of our ecological systems are fragile. Understanding the root origin of how we thrive as humans is essential in empowering everyday citizens to make small but meaningful changes to their daily lives for the better.

WHERE TO WATCH IT: Netflix – Watch Panel with the filmmakers HERE

6. Infinite Potential:  The Life & Ideas of David Bohm

A transformational journey through the mystery of consciousness, Paul Howard’s film is surprisingly accessible for those of us who have never taken a physics course.  David Bohm, one of the 20th Century’s most brilliant physicists, was Albert Einstein’s spiritual son and the Dalai Lama’s “science guru.” Not only does Bohm discover through science Quantum Potential, he unites these discoveries with Eastern wisdom, firmly establishing the interconnectedness of all things.  Infinite Potential includes interviews with luminaries such as H.H. the Dalai Lama, esteemed artist Antony Gormley, Oxford philosopher and physicists Sir Roger Penrose, and many more who were influenced by Bohm’s revolutionary work.  Today Bohm’s work is finally being recognized for its potential to revolutionize human thought and our relationship to the planet.  If watching this film doesn’t spark your neurotransmitters, it’s time to up your consciousness-raising practice.

WHERE TO WATCH IT: GAIA – Watch a Q&A with the Filmmakers HERE

7. The Social Dilemma

The documentary examines the effect that a handful of leading digital social media platforms, including but not limited to Google, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter have over the public; it is emphasized that a relatively small number of engineers make decisions that impact billions of people. The alarm bells have been sounded for years, but have been layered in tech jargon and a lot of consumer confusion. The Social Dilemma strips away the tech talk and speaks to the human impacts of these connected platforms that seem to be fragmenting society more than they are connecting them.

WHERE TO WATCH IT: Netflix

8. The High Note

Starring the always inspiring and entertaining Dakota Johnson as Maggie and Tracey Ellis Ross as Grace, The High Note is set in the dazzling world of the LA music scene and tells the story of Grace Davis, a superstar whose talent, and ego, have reached unbelievable heights. Maggie is Grace’s overworked personal assistant who’s stuck running errands, but still aspires to her childhood dream of becoming a music producer. When Grace’s manager presents her with a choice that could alter the course of her career, Maggie and Grace come up with a plan that could change their lives forever. A lovely film that reminds us that our stations in life are really just in our heads!

WHERE TO WATCH IT: Apple TV

9. A Life On Our Planet

Growing up in the UK, David Attenborough inspired my passion for world travel and nature. Now 93, this icon who practically invented the nature documentary genre, lays bare his ‘witness statement’ for the environment.  In his lifetime, Attenborough has watched with horror as the planet’s biodiversity has degenerated before his eyes. His utter sadness is revealed in Close-up shots of a face that has seen the advent of global air travel, the first images of the earth from the moon, and the astonishing beauty of the natural world.  Yes, we grieve with him, but all is not lost.  This beloved man lifts our spirits and raises consciousness with solutions that will save the planet if we act quickly.

WHERE TO WATCH IT: Netflix

10. Happiest Season

Bringing an all-star cast together, including Kristen Stewart as Abby and Mackenzie Davis as Harper, The Happiest Season is a contemporary love story that will warm hearts and bring families together. Abby Holland and Harper Caldwell are a lesbian couple who have been dating nearly a year. Abby dislikes Christmas since her parents passed away, so Harper spontaneously invites Abby to celebrate the holidays with her family in her hometown. Things are looking bright and starlit until Harper reveals to Abby she actually hadn’t come out to her family, so back in the closet they go. Watch as The Happiest Season reveals how the key to our own personal freedom can’t be controlled by anyone, but ourselves.

WHERE TO WATCH IT: Hulu

Our Discussion About Dr. Fauci Telling People To Wear Goggles To Protect Against COVID-19

Joe, Ruby and I recently sat down for our weekly show, “The Takeaway” to discuss Dr. Anthony Fauci’s recent recommendation that all people should be wearing goggles as well as a mask in order to protect themselves against COVID-19. As most of you reading this will know, mask mandates in public settings have caused quite a controversy, especially in Canada and in the United States. Well known and reputable doctors and scientists seem to be the catalyst, having brought a lot of attention to themselves by sharing their expert opinions and research. Today, however, we are living in a very different environment as information that contradicts what’s told to us by our federal health regulatory agencies is now deleted, blocked, and censored from social media platforms and Google searchers.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, based on what I have been seeing and from our own experience here at Collective Evolution, we are living in a time where a digital authoritarian Orwellian fact-checker is patrolling the internet and censoring information, deeming it as “false” when in many cases, the information doesn’t appear to be false at all. Don’t get me wrong, there is plenty of “fake news” out there, but should people not have the right to examine information and determine for themselves what is, and what isn’t instead of having someone else do it for them?

In the episode below we share our opinions and talk about where we see things going within the next few months. It’s a two part episode, in the second part we talk about an interesting document within the CIA’s electronic reading dealing with the affect human intention can have on physical material systems. If you’re interested in that, you can access it on CETV, here.  CETV is a platform we created to combat the censorship we are currently experiencing, as many  of you probably already know of by now.

  • The Facts:

    Woody Harrelson shares some spoken word with a deep message.

  • Reflect On:

    How do you view our current world? Does it truly resonate with you? Is it something you want to support? If you could put your energy into a world of thriving abundance, would you? Then why so much energy into the way things are?

I sit here today having been reminded of a Woody Harrelson video after watching a movie he acted in. I recalled the first time I saw this video. It was one of the first realizations I had, about 9 years ago, that many celebrities also go through life with trials and tribulations of the average person. Perhaps not in all ways, but certainly in many. This is an obvious thought of course, but sometimes not all that common.

When I saw this video, I remember thinking, wow, I love what he is sharing, and coming from his place of influence this truly has a powerful message. This is an awesome video made by Woody Harrelson sharing some powerful thoughts from within.

In the video Woddy lays out a spoken word masterpiece that touches on all of the main aspects of our current society. If you truly take the time to listen, there is much to reflect on. And of course, there is an inspiring side of it all too.

This one is a bit of a throw back, but it’s a good one. Enjoy it!
