From Owen Barfield to Wes Anderson

At the end of the Responding to Barfield series (see sidebar), I felt left with the question, what does it look like to "put things back together"? Some hints of that have been found in other books by Barfield, and Tolkien's Lord of the Rings may be the best example of it, but I want more. I want examples, diagrams, panoramas. This excellent essay by Michael Chabon shows how the films of Wes Anderson may show us something about that. The best example of this, and Anderson's best film, is Moonrise Kingdom. Now I need to go back and watch those other films again ...
