First of all an apology for any errors while writing this note, since english is not my first language.
The whole story gets really deep into any persons emotional side.
As for the story, Jeremy (the main character) shows some abilities that are not that "unreal", I agree with the opinion mentioned in this site.
In fact, there are some ways to develop or "unlock" such capabilities. Not only the oriental beliefs learned how to develop and manage inner and outer energy in order to manipulate all type of matter. The Kabalah teachs a litle bit of this. I believe all this is a universal knowledge spread in various cultures.
talking about oriental paths, I receintly saw TV program from BBC that showed a martial art called Shintaido, that could actually manipulate the opponent energy field whithout physical contact, the big question always arises, can this be true? I would like to believe so, but at the moment I guess I am still experiencing a theoretical stage.
Going back to the topic, I really enjoy the whole movie!

The movie seemed to attempt to inform the movie viewers of a new way of looking at the world, but was cheapened by the limits of writing and production for the average movie viewing public. It's funny. I study Pak Mei Pai Chinese Gong Fu, which like other traditional Taoist arts requires hours of yogic meditation (chi gong in Cantonese) every day. And masters going back as far as the days of the Shaolin temple believed in the things Powder told the girl at the fair, as far as everything in our universe being connected, even the girl herself being connected to everyone at the fair and even being connected to the tree they were sitting next to. And from the hours of meditation every day, fighting monks from such martial havens as the Shaolin temple or the Wu Tang and Ngo Mei mountains were known to read the thoughts and memories of others just as Powder did in the movie. I used search engines to study it, and even set up a website (www.geocities.com/chitownkiduzzu/classic_blue.html).
But as far as the movie, it was nice. Not only did I enjoy it, but it left me wanting to know what books the writer was reading to know Chinese philosophy like that, where I could get the books, and where I could get information written by the American professors at the head of this school of philosophy (which I think is currently called Quantum Physics).

Do any of us know why we are alive? Is there a reason? I was intrigued by this movie due not only to a profound plot, but it made me ask these questions. What is humanity? Why do we all want to be normal? Is one brave because one seeks not to be afraid of what one does not understand? Why do athletes that make $7 million each year strike because they want to make $8 million? Why are gold, silver, and diamonds so valuable? Because they are shiny? Are not crows attracted to shiny objects as well? I think it was put best by Switchfoot: "What do we know what life is outside of our convenient Lexus cages?"
