Psychick Cinema meets Cinemacephale

Cinema—from kinein to move,—concerns that which moves.
Mysticism—from myein to close so that mystikos means a secret matter, something one's eyes cannot stand to see and one's mouth must not speak—concerns that which is hidden.

The zone of cinemysticism then, is about the connection between what moves and what is hidden, and more specifically, how this link is found in the (secret) experience of movies.
What are the hidden connections between cinema, consciousness, and the nature of vision? In what sense is film a medium of, or avenue towards mystical experience?

How can movies in light of our deficient grasp of reality serve to lead one out of the cave of illusion?
