Watching Theology July 21st, 2010
Loved by millions, generation after generation, The Wizard of Oz remains a symbol of the wonder film can inspire. It is the magical tale of a poor farm girl brought to a Technicolor land of munchkins, witches, and flying monkeys. The story has the power to likewise transport the viewer "over the rainbow" into a land of possibility. And now, all that's over. In this episode Joe and Duke conclude their "Cave" series by looking at how The Wizard of Oz is just another tale of illusion and deception and that Oz and its wizard are part of a conspiracy to mock reality. Bah humbug! This episode is the fifth in "The Cave" series, an examinations of films that feature Utopias, Delusions, and Deceptions. [04.05]
