THE ALLEGED ALLEGORICAL ALCHEMY OF THE MYSTERY MEN MOVIE!

IS IT JUST CAMPY FUN?....OR SOMETHING MORE?

Mystery! That is the Passion!

   

Hello MYSTERY MEN fans!

This website is dedicated to the fantastic proposition that the 1999 movie "Mystery Men" is, in fact, a remarkably in-depth socio-political allegory  on a grand scale! In other words, the characters and events portrayed in this movie have hidden symbolic meanings  and implied references to real-life organizations and cultural situations that were meant for only a select few in our society to see and appreciate. The general public was never meant to comprehend the true analogous implications of this movie. I however, find this sort of thing fascinating in the extreme.

   So,...could it be true?! Is 'Mystery Men' a 'STEALTH' movie?

    Now don't get me wrong,...I'm not against this movie in any way. I mean,....I loved the movie. No denying it....I wish there was more and kudos to the creators and writers for concocting such a symbological masterpiece. But....(and this is a BIG 'BUT' )...there are privileged classes in America who consider themselves to be "to the manor born" who did not EARN their special knowledge or positions of privilege but do like to slyly lord that fact over the rest of us. So while it is a rather common human frailty to 'revel in exclusiveness' and join secret societies and 'mystery cults'  and such, I am against it when it creates barriers to the advancement of humanity as a whole by promoting a class struggle in our nation. I believe in the American ideal of self-determination and this website is just my way of tweaking the nose of 'the illuminated' and letting them know that they can't fool all the people all the time.    

    Now all that heavy stuff being said, I must admit that I have a great admiration for the Mystery Men movie and it's creators. It makes great populist statements about teamwork and the common man that gladdens my heart in a most endearing way. It is the sheer depth of the movie's meaning that must be brought to light. Many great artistic masterpieces incorporate hidden symbolic meanings that require well-studied art afficionados to fully appreciate. I just happen to be an artist AND an afficionado of paradox systems theory that can fully appreciate the hidden symbologies in this 'cinematic masterpiece'. While some of the motivations behind the scenes may be questionable, the Mystery Men movie is no less a renaissance-style masterpiece. I truly feel that the movie was not given the level of respect that was it's due. It will, I believe, shine brighter through the years as time goes by and my efforts on this website to expose the hidden elements of the movie and create a controversy over it will merely serve to bring a greater appreciation of its value to the history of American cinema. An allegorical triumph of such proportions should not be allowed to 'hide its light under a bushel' so to speak. I'm afraid I have no choice but to blab.

    Some initial points....

    POINT ONEThe symbolism is there. Study the other pages of this site and you'll see.

    POINT TWO: How does a minor part of a second-rate independant comic rate it's own Hollywood movie? There's a real mystery for you.

    POINT THREE: There are just three possible ways of explaining the plethora of analogous symbologies ...

       A. ( The Jaded, Occam perspectiveGET REAL!....the Mystery Men movie is just 'a movie'....a campy send-up of an obscure but entertaining part of an independant comic book series called "Flaming Carrot". Any and all references to persons, organizations and events, etc...are purely Co-inky-dental!...geez....

        2. ( The Una-Bombastic perspective) Get a clue Sherlock! Mystery Men is a 'stealth movie' rife with hidden messages meant for world-wide members of a secret society. Which secret society?....who could it be, who could it be? I just can't imagine who! Could it beeeeee....THE FREEMASONS!?!? But of course!...just as Amadeus Mozart (a freemason) once put the secret masonic knock into his opera "The Magic Flute" for all the masons in the audience to appreciate,....the Mystery Men movie encodes and conveys a wealth of of symbological meanings and predictions meant for masonic minds only. AND WHAT ABOUT THE BACK OF THE DOLLAR BILL?!

        3. ( The Pseudo-scientific perspective) HELLLL-LOOOO!!!...haven't you ever heard of SYNCHRONICITY! There were crossword puzzles in London before D-Day that had the landing beach code-names embedded in them. Military intelligence arrested and interrogated innocent people for days before the truth of synchronicity came forward. There are harmless things about nature that we humans have yet to understand. Can't we all just get along?  ( I'll have a double mocha latte with whip cream please.)

    So here we are.

    Is it "Give it a rest you idiot" door number 1?....

         ...'Conspiracy Brother' door number 2?...

       ...or 'Weakly Reader' door number 3? 

        YOU -  MUST - DECIDE!

SO FASTEN YOUR SEATBELTS KIDS!.........SUSPICION  has finally ARRIVED!....

.....and it looks like she's ordered the LOBSTER!

START HERE!

Vaya con Dios amigo,..
