Sunflower in Tupac-Resurrection movie:
Towards the end of "Tupac - Resurrection" movie, there's a mysterious sunflower that appears and you don't see that sunflower throughout the rest of the movie, only towards the end of the movie.
^^^ I believe that this sunflower represents 2pac for several reason. First of all, at 0:13 the camera is taking us through a desert to a remote area and then at 1:17 bam! all of a sudden, a sunflower mysteriously appears in some remote quiet area, an area that is away from the cities and away from people and in the middle of nowhere, and there's no other flower out there in that region, in fact while the camera starts moving from above it, you clearly see that the flower is by itself as if it were alone and withdrawn. You see just one yellow flower (actually a group of 3 flowers together) in that entire region. I believe that just like "The Rose that grew from the concrete", it represents 2pac alive and alone, still growing in a spot away somewhere quiet.
Notice at 0:13 while the camera was taking us through the desert you hear 2pac saying "we grow, we all grow, we're made to grow, you either evolve or you disappear" as if he was telling us that he disappeared and he is growing and evolving.
Now when we watch the intro to the movie, you see some interesting things :
^^^ After what they did in Vegas that night, notice how the camera makes it seem as if a car was speeding away from the strip and then it goes from that scene into the air as if a person was flying away, then the camera starts to take us across to that remote area and at some point you see the camera crossing that same desert that we saw towards the end of the movie right before we saw that mysterious sunflower, and while the camera is taking us there you hear 2pac saying "what I saw about death... We look at death from the selfish side, like you know 'that guy died, it's so sad'. Why is it sad? He's away from all of this bad stuff that's here on earth. At the worst, he's just somewhere quiet, no nothin"..."what is so bad about death?" and at the end of the movie, that was exactly what we saw; a sunflower away somewhere quiet with "no nothin".
Another reason why the sunflower is being used is because sunflowers are also known for being "happy flowers" : http://www.proflowers.com/blog/histo...-of-sunflowers
In the "Tupac - Resurrection" movie intro, even though some of the audio clips were edited, in the Vegas scene, they made it seem as if 2pac was looking back to the past in Vegas from the future and he was telling us "I'm surprised, BUT I'M HAPPY... I believe that you know, it's all in God's hands.. and I'm very appreciative to God for everything I've gotten to do" so I can see how sunflowers which are known for being happy flowers right in the middle of nowhere can represent 2pac being happy after he faked his death in Vegas and relocated. The late artist Vincent Van Gogh whom 2pac admired was famous for painting Sunflowers and Van Gogh admits in one letter: "My paintings are... a cry of anguish while symbolizing gratitude in the rustic sunflower."
Sunflower in 2pac "Do 4 Love" video:
As a matter of fact, this same mysterious sunflower appeared right at the very beginning of 2pac's "Do 4 Love" video and the artwork for the sky in background looked similar to Vincent Van Gogh's famous 1889 painting called "The Starry Night". Here's a picture of it:
Here's "Do 4 Love" video:
^^^ What's interesting is that the location of the sunflower in the music video is very similar to the location of the one in the Tupac-Resurrection movie: A remote area surrounded by deserts and mountains. Notice how the sunflower just grows out of the solid ground with that type of flower being a symbol of a happy flower. The only reference to sunflowers that 2pac made was in his poem "Starry Night" which he wrote dedicated in memory of Vincent Van Gogh. In the poem, 2pac said "u have given them the stars at night and you have given them bountiful bouquets of sunflowers".
As a matter of fact, also in the "Do 4 Love" video you see a sunflower in the Thug's Mansion right next to the mirror on the left:
Sunflowers follow the Sun:
It is a well known fact that sunflowers both follow and face the sun: https://www.scienceabc.com/nature/su...ollow-sun.html
From some of 2pac's songs and his interviews, it is clear that 2pac was on a quest to either reach the sun or to get some sort of sunshine. In the dictionary, "sunshine" also means "cheerfulness or happiness" or "a source of cheer or happiness". : http://www.dictionary.com/browse/sunshine?s=t
In the last interview, 2pac made it clear that he wanted to "get this dark cloud off us as a race". He also made reference to "some kind of sunshine" so that "we can stop s*ckin Malcom X and Michael Jordan dick, like we don't never have to be shit because we got Jordan and Malcom X" : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h18Bg7NqtRM
He also told us in "Me Against the World" 2pac tells us at the end "through every dark night, there's a bright day after that", and on "Unconditional Love" he tells us that" tomorrow comes after the dark" and on "When we ride on our enemies" he told us "then we ride till the sun come, shining back to brighten up the sky", and on "Fairexchange" he tells the girl "we can ride till the sunshine", and on "Lost Souls" that he was waiting till "the rain turn to sunshine". In "My closest Roaddogz" he said "watch for the second coming cause I can see the sun" and on "So Many Tearz" he asks, "will I survive till the morning to see the sun?", and in the ending of "Mama's just a Lil Girl" while Pac is talking, he tells us concerning the Rose that grew from the concrete, "we will all love it's will to reach the sun".
There are more lyrics about the sun or sunshine but those are just some to show that 2pac was expressing some sort of quest to get to the sun or to get some sunshine because it represented happiness not just for himself a lone but for the oppressed, and as I had stated earlier, sunflowers are known to follow and face the sun.
Tupac-Resurrection movie told a story that went from the Late night to the morning:
The Tupac-Resurrection movie actually represented a story being narrated by 2pac. In the intro he told us "all I have to do is tell a story and reach you, and get some kind of feeling from you.. and then get the moral across. So this is my story" but keep in mind that right before he said that, he said "so it's not like I have to tell the truth", therefore some of things that he tells us in the story is not true, for instance Pac telling us "I got shot" is not true, he's just telling you a story to reach you. It's story about his homicide and his rebirth.
It was meant to be 2pac in his future looking back at the night in Vegas where it all began and then throughout the movie he talks about his mother, his childhood, his past life and different experiences that he went through leading up to the night in Vegas and then rounds up the story by giving us a message or the moral of the story. But did you notice that at the beginning of the movie, the Vegas scene was in the late night or in the Dark and then as camera made it seem as if a car was speeding through the strip in Vegas, it went from Dark to Light or from Late night to morning and then it seems as if a person took off and was flying away. This scene continued at the end of the movie when 2pac started wrapping up the story and giving us the moral of it. That's when you see the sunflower or sunflowers in the middle of nowhere in the sunshine.
Do you get it? Sunflowers face and follow the sun and 2pac made it to the sunshine.
