Welcome once again to Blog Spot, in which I use my small but loyal following to give more attention to the work of others.
I've made no secret of the fact that I'm a Christian. My reviews have often contained discussion of Biblical stories, themes or imagery, and many episodes of The Movie Hour podcast that I've done have tackled Christian or at least spiritual themes - for instance, The Wicker Man, Angel Heart, Heartless and Whistle Down the Wind. I'd like to stress, however, that I try not to intentionally force Christian interpretations onto a film just because I like it, or that I gravitate towards one film over another just because it appeals to my personal beliefs. I was guilty on both counts when I wrote this article for WhatCulture! about Christianity in film, and received such a well-deserved kicking for it that I felt the need to respond with this piece.
The site's homepage is here, and the rest of their mission statement can be found here. If you want a quick flavour of their style of film criticism, I suggest that you start with Nick Olson's recent review of Looper, which you can find (with spoilers) here. God bless you and thanks for reading.
