"Tommy" by The Who
Posted by Gail Sullivan on July 30, 1997 at 13:55:51:

Tommy is an excellent example of the distinctions between
inside and outside. While lost "in a quiet vibration land" this
deaf, dumb and blind child manages to see himself in a mirror. But
he is unable to respond to anything else. Through his infinite contact
with himself he becomes a fully-realized person while still cut off
from society as a whole.
Once his mother breaks the mirror he sets out on a journey as a new messiah,
attempting to lead others down the same path to enlightenment.

The movie sucked, tho. Listen to the music.
