Subject: The Frantic Urge To Soar
- “Whiplash” – In this motion picture we see what being “unstoppable means” (what happens) when both a jazz ensemble conductor and an aspiring drummer have an unstoppable urge to soar. They put on a world-class musical performance.
- “The Theory of Everything” – In this motion picture we see what being “unstoppable means” when a man loses his ability to speak because his vocal cords don’t work and he has an unstoppable urge to soar in spite of that. He learns to “speak” by raising an eyebrow which gets converted into a letter which spells out a word which is converted by a machine into speech which allows him to give lectures and write a book which sells over 10 million copies.
- “American Sniper” – In this motion picture we see what being unstoppable means when an “old man” (a thirty year old man) decides to become a Navy Seal because he wants to protect his country and has an unstoppable urge to soar in protecting his country which takes him to four tours of duty as a Navy Seal in Iraq and Afghanistan. The man becomes a legend, the most deadly sniper in the history of the American Armed Forces.
- “The Imitation Game” – We see what happens when a man with the unstoppable urge to solve an unsolvable problem (to break a secret Nazi Code being used in World War II) and the impulse to soar keeps going after facing one obstacle and disappointment after another. Winston Churchill opined that as a result of this man’s work the War in Europe was shortened by two to four years and that this man made the single most and largest contribution to the defeat of Nazi Germany in World War II.
