‘Kevin’ Reveals Conscious Creation’s Dark Side

“We Need to Talk About Kevin” (2011). Cast: Tilda Swinton, John C. Reilly, Ezra Miller, Jasper Newell, Rock Duer, Ashley Gerasimovich. Director: Lynne Ramsay. Screenplay: Lynne Ramsay and Rory Kinnear. Book: Lionel Shriver. http://kevin.oscilloscope.net/ Many practitioners of conscious creation (also known as the law of attraction) like to believe that it’s a purely positive force aimed only at improving the state of mankind.

Story: Seth MacFarlane. www.tedisreal.comWe’ve all no doubt wished that something seemingly improbable would come true. And, amazingly, there are times when that, in fact, happens, despite the odds being stacked against it. In some instances, those materialized wishes live up their billing in every regard, while, in others, there are unanticipated consequences, as an idealistic lad turned confused adult finds out in the outrageous new comedy, “Ted.”John (Bretton Manley) is a lonely little boy. As a youngster growing up in the Boston suburbs in the late 1970s, he’s largely ignored, sometimes taunted, by all the neighborhood kids. Which is why he’s so excited one Christmas morning when his parents (Ralph Garman, Alex Borstein) present him with the gift of an adorable teddy bear whom John names Ted. John’s so taken with his new toy that he quickly comes to see him as his best ...
