Warning: Spoilers ahead – ‘Behind the Curtain’, unlike any other movie review show. Listen to Gareth and Alex as they dissect their favourite films in true Mind Set style. Asking the questions other shows are afraid to ask and revealing what’s hiding in plain sight.


Altered States (1980)

“Fight it, Eddie. You made it real, you can make it unreal.”

Sealed into an isolation chamber Eddie Jessop shuts himself off from the world. With nothing but his mind to distract him he searches to find if ‘God’ really exists. Yet this is not enough for Eddie – He wants to ‘touch his creator’...

When we dream is our mind simply piecing together random events or are there meanings behind the images? Is hallucination a dreamlike state that we can have whilst being fully conscious?

If our minds literally create ‘reality’, as some scientists suggest, then perhaps dreams open the doorway to the ‘creator’. And if meeting ‘him’ could rip your world apart… Would you want to say hello?

    I’d long forgotten about this one, its a classic. I remember really wanting to try a floatation tank at the time, I never got around to it. It made me think about this movie which has a similar theme and is from the same year.
