Carl Jung: Matter of Heart - documentary

Matter of Heart is a very interesting 1986 documentary about Carl Jung, that examines his life and times, but more importantly his ideas, particularly about the collective unconscious, often with a mystical bent that was characteristic of Jung's work. The film consists largely of reminiscences and  insights by many of Jung's former pupils, friends and colleagues, as well as some footage of Jung himself being interviewed later in his life.

Well worth a look.

Thanks for this, bookmarked for later. I think Jung's auto bio, Memeories, Dreams, Reflections, is a terrific book. Helped me understand what was going on in Shutter Island . . . ;O)
