“America’s True Religion…

is not Christianity, it’s Love.”

One of the GeeksOn guys, during a discussion (inspired by Pan’s Labyrinth, which if you haven’t seen, you should) about the role of fairy tale iconography in modern cinema , said this; and man, what a righteous statement. They go on to discuss it a bit, it’s pretty interesting; especially for those of us who are fed up with our society’s preoccupation with romantic delusion and relationships based on, well, fairy tales, rather than reality.

The Geeks are a bit much for the uninitiated, so if you just want to skip to this section, it starts at 1:14:16.
