Jay Dyer's Esoteric Hollywood: Sex, Cults and Symbolism In Film goes up there with some of the best alternative media books out there. I would place it right beside's David Icke's The Biggest Secret in terms of it's scope and the revelations it entails and yet unlike Icke's book, Mr. Dyer's work is not that of a conspiracy researcher. Rather he is kind of like a University Professor teaching his audience or students in esoteric film studies designed to provoke cognitive reflection. I think Esoteric Hollywood: Sex, Cults and Symbolism In Film could be a text book and I would advise anyone with an interest cinema or the media, regardless of which direction you approach it, to buy this book a read it through. Mr. Dyer is incredibly well read based on his references and he truly gives the reader the impression that he knows what he is talking about and that is regardless if you agree with his assessments or not. I really cannot recommend this book highly enough. Film students should read this as well as writing students and anyone interested in the arts. This makes an excellent companion to Christian Vogler's The Writer's Journey as well as The Power of Myth with Joseph Campbell and Bill Moyers. In fact this just might be what I call required reading for humanity. Pick it up and see for yourself now.
