Is one of my favorite modern stories for archetyping the elements of ALL stories...
Clearly defined elements of loss, goal, journey, opposition and twist... and the PSYCHOLOGY!!! Wow.
Books have been written on the Id, Ego and Superego of Scarecrow, Tinman and Cowardly Lion.
An external manifestation (in subconcious dream state) of one's own inner guides through the mysteries of the mind...still copied to this day in
affable conflicting characters like Joey, Ross and Chandler.
But the symbolism of this article is an unnecssary stretch. It is what it is... a journey through one's own dreaming mind.
(Plus cool as hell, high and listening to Pink Floyd)
