Cinema Symbolism 3 teaser….

CS3‘s template looks really good; as such, I am anticipating a March 2021 release. In the meantime, enjoy this teaser….

When form becomes actuality: Gabriel Albinet’s (1865-1930) fascinating poster for Péladan’s third Rose Croix salon (1894) sowed the seeds of one of the greatest hoaxes of the 20th and 21st centuries. It depicts the polymath Leonardo da Vinci (1592-1519) as Joseph of Arimathea, the godfather of the Holy Grail mysteries, and poet Dante Alighieri (ca. 1265-1321) as Hugues de Payens (ca. 1070-1136), Grand Master and cofounder of the Knights Templar. An angel descends with the holy chalice, the sacred feminine, passing its secrets to the initiated few. The advertisement triggered Pierre Plantard (1920-2000) and Philippe de Chérisey’s (1923-1985) Priory of Sion ludibrium (obviously!): Jesus Christ’s bloodline, symbolized by the Grail, was still extant, covertly documented by a Masonic-Rosicrucian secret society, corroborated by the Dossiers Secrets d’Henri Lobineau. The Priory claims, among others, da Vinci, mathematician and physicist Isaac Newton (1642-1727), astrologer and occultist Robert Fludd (1574-1637), and composer Claude Debussy (1862-1918) as Grand Masters; the latter having transformed music through Hermetic initiation: the immersion in divine intellect (nous) invisible to the world and the worldly. The poster produced the germ that became the book Holy Blood, Holy Grail (1982), begetting Dan Brown’s puerile The Da Vinci Code novel (2003) and movie (2006).

Cinema Symbolism 3 is finished, and I am reviewing the final proof. Expected release date is March 2021. Stay tuned… Enjoy this teaser…

Harvey Dent is the arch-criminal Two-Face. No longer the white knight balanced out by the Dark Knight, Two-Face embodies dualism: good and evil, Fraggles and Doozers, order and chaos, personifying the double-headed god Janus. A flip of Two-Face’s coin determines whether his victim lives or dies. The address he holds the Gordon family hostage at the end, where Batman and Commissioner Gordon confront him, is 250 52nd Street, where Rachel died. Nota bene: 250 52, or 25052, is a palindrome characterizing extremities: love and hate, peace and war, life and death.

13 May 2018: Excerpt from Cinema Symbolism 3….

Currently writing Cinema Symbolism 3. Here is an excerpt (rough draft) for your consideration.

Bates Motel
was one of this author’s favorite television series. It aired on the A&E Network for five seasons from 2013 to 2017. The show was a modern retelling of Hitchcock’s Psycho with hardcore Easter eggs turning up during its entire run. The eggs served to pay homage to Hitchcock and Psycho (1960). Psycho is replete with esoteric symbolism, so it is no wonder Bates Motel followed in its footsteps.

PsychoPaitingBates

(Left) Susanna and the Elders oil painting by either Frans van Mieris the Elder (1635-1681) or Willem van Mieris (1662-1747), Frans’ youngest son. The painting, based on a story from the Bible, shows three men, like Norman Bates, spying on a bathing woman. In the Biblical tale, the men accuse her of erotic blackmail; in Room 1 of the Bates Motel, Norman qua Mother brutally stabs the naked woman. (Right) During Psycho’s climatic grand finale, Norman assumes Susanna’s same posture as he is being subdued by Sam Loomis.

For instance, the oil painting Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins, 1932-1992) uses to cover the secret peephole in the Bates Motel parlor symbolizes his repressed sexuality. Voyeuristically watching Marion Crane (Janet Leigh, 1927-2004), his passion brings jealous “Mother” to life; she, not Norman, seals her fate. The image is a replica of a painting called Susanna and the Elders. It depicts a story from the Bible–Book of Daniel, Chapter 13–in which three old men spy on an innocent woman as she gets ready to bathe, but when they find themselves overcome with passion, they accuse her of sexual blackmail. Later, when he is caught by Sam Loomis (John Gavin, 1931-2018), Norman’s position mirrors Susanna’s from the painting: his clothes are torn while his head is thrown back, and his right arm lifted high in the air. Stripped of his mother’s dress and his cheap wig, Norman is finally seen “naked” for all he is: mother and son, female and male, guilty and innocent.
