Buddhism and TRON

We’re going to talk about Buddhism and sci-fi again! Get ready for several episodes about sci-fi, movies, music, the creative process, and Buddhism.

In this episode we talk about TRON: Legacy, a movie that probably only the two of us and, like, three other people ever saw. But it’s got specific and explicit Buddhist references. And its star, Jeff Bridges, has said he has a Buddhist practice. Does this make Tron a Buddhist movie? What does it even mean for something to be a “Buddhist” movie? We talk about these issues as well as the specific Buddhist elements in Tron, the creative process, Buddhism, art, and music.
