Why are these gnostically-themed movies so popular? What are they tapping into both in us and our culture? What do we need to listen to and know about the message they're sending us?
In our society today, many people don't trust their knowledge about the world. They don't trust government, science, or journalists, there are no real leaders only elites pandering to the masses for their own personal gain.
Movies about fake leaders and lies about the social order resonate with how we feel about society today and are analgous to the gnostic ideas of a flawed creator of a false world.
