' Whereas once I was blind, now I can see. '

As we start this blog in an inspiring way with a great Ima movie example (thank you for that Mr. Romirez), I would also like to contribute to this kick-off of online co-creation.

In atmosphere of linking Imagineering to the white screen, I would like to recommend you guys also a great movie that has many great touch points with the New Economy we are exploring. I don't consider it as one of the greatest movies ever made, but with eye on service experience & transformation...it really is one of a kind.

The movie is called: The Game ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0119174/ )
Synopsis: The main character of The Game, Nicholas Van Orton (M. Douglas) is a successful businessman, but his success has come at the cost of his family life; when the movie opens, he is divorced, distant from his caring ex-wife and cold toward his relatives and social environment. On Nicholas's 48th birthday, his little brother presents him an unusual gift, a game offered by a company called Consumer Recreation Services promising that it will change Nicholas' life.
During the movie the Game takes over Nicholas life, challenging all his norms & values by putting him in situations as being chased, saving people, and give up his material goods. At a certain point of the movie Nicholas (and you as a viewer) comes to the believe that The Game is a scam to expropriate his capital. At the end of the adventure of chasing the people scamming him, he accidentally shoots his little brother. At that moment Nicholas realized that everything he stands for in life, all his core values and principles weren't the ones making him ,or the people that were important to him, happy. But everything was too late now....he killed his little brother and life was no good for him anymore, he decides to commit suicide and jumps off a skyscraper.....

What happened next....check the last 8 minutes of the movie, and you will understand why this is a movie about an ultimate and intense staged experience that leads to a transformation companies in the New Economy can only (wet) dream of...
