Joseph Campbell - The Power of Myth ($33) is the ultimate documentary. Bill Moyers conducts one of the greatest interviews with Campbell, author and professor, in a seamless style that presents Campbell as mentor, rather than interviewee. Integrating pop-culture, notably Star Wars, Campell suggests that we need myths to survive and to understand our existence. The national sensation that was filmed over the course of two years prior to Campbell's death, explores Japanese, Mayan, Egyptian and Native American myths. Set at George Lucas's Skywalker Ranch and New York's American Museum of Natural History, this series will ignite your imagination and spark your desire for more Campbell!
