3 Magic Words is a 2010 documentary film about spirituality and metaphysics. The film was written, directed and produced by Michael Perlin and co-produced by Maura Hoffman.[1][dead link] The film was shot over a period of four years in the Los Angeles area. The lead is played by Gabriella Ethereal and the film is narrated by Cameron Smith.

Content[edit]

The film uses interviews, computer-animated graphics, and narration to address the question, “Who Am I?". It does this while following a fictional account of a self-destructive young woman who has recently awoke from a coma and doesn't know who she is, and the process of that journey. People interviewed in the film include Neale Donald Walsch, Gary Renard, Debbie Ford, Jasmuheen, and others.[2] The film covers spiritual concepts from eastern mysticism and the New Age movement. The movie contains quotes by historical figures such as Gandhi, Buddha, Jesus, John Lennon, Plato, Sai Baba, Einstein, Osho, and others.[3] Perlin states that the divine unity (oneness with a god) taught by the film refers to pure consciousness and not personal ego. The film advocates the dawning of a new era where people feel their connection to each other and see all of nature as divine aspects of their own self.[4]

Development[edit]

Perlin first had the idea to create the film after an existential crisis while working as a cook at the Macaroni Grill.[5]
