Millions of Hippie Preachers

Two of my more recent film columns are now online.

My review of Danny Boyle’s Millions for BC Christian News is here — alas, I didn’t have time or space to compare and contrast this film with Saint Ralph, but then, why take time out from discussing a vastly superior film in order to dwell on an inferior one?

And my column on Frisbee: The Life and Death of a Hippie Preacher for ChristianWeek is here, and also here. I quote only one sentence from my interview with director David Di Sabatino in this article, but a fuller Q&A; will eventually appear on the Christianity Today website, closer to the film’s premiere at the Newport Beach Film Festival, which runs April 21-30.
