      Damn right, Mike.... Tommy Gnosis is what Meatloaf would be if he
      had any understanding of Platonism ;)

      This is a pretty darn good movie. Low budget, and more
      technically "Platonist" than "Gnostic".... but I have made no bones
      about the fact that I am also perhaps more Platonist that Gnostic
      anyway *hehe*. The music is cheesy, and skilled at the same time.

      There are also sexual elements that I think the author meant on a
      literal level, but could also be taken on a literary level. It made
      me rethink my own influences and how practical applications could be
      worked into it. That is one of the best reviews I could give for a
      movie... believe me.

      Second only to the Truman Show in what I think may be conciously
      influenced by Gnostic thought.
