Episode 66: Robert Sullivan - Cinema Symbolism

Have you ever wondered why 007 is James Bond's numerical designation? Or where the name Luke Skywalker comes from? How about all those giant faces that pass judgment on General Zod and his lieutenants at the beginning of 1978's Superman? What's behind the symbolism of all those mirrors in Black Swan?

Robert Sullivan IV returns to discuss his new book: Cinema Symbolism: A Guide to Esoteric Imagery in Popular Movies which answers these questions about occult, numerological, astrological, mythological, alchemical, Tarot, and kabbalistic iconography and symbolism contained in popular movies.
