This is mainly about an all night conversation at Magdalen College among Lewis, Tolkien and a third friend which allowed Lewis to make the leap of faith, accepting the story of Jesus Christ as a "true myth". An interesting point is also made about Tolkien's belief that we are all "sub-creators" derived from the Creator. All in all, this is an hour well spent.

Repetitive, meandering and vague, I couldn't sit through the whole 42 minute video, although I tried my best. Essentially: myths are not fact, but they are truth.

This movie seems to be some insidious way of justifying religion through the use of myth. It really has nothing to do with Tolkien or Lewis. Most of the interviewees are reverends or some other religious type with a few "scholars" to add legitimacy to the overall nonsense.
