Necessity, invention and why Hollywood is doomed to fail

Most of us have heard the phrase “Necessity is the mother of invention” so often that we never stop to question it. On a gut level, the narrative it creates in our mind seems undeniably true: Someone encounters a problem or need, so he or she devises a clever means by which to solve that [Read More...]

Help us make “The Divine Comedy of Thomas Merton” a reality!

We’ve just launched a 60-day IndieGoGo campaign to raise $2.2 million in development and pre-production costs for The Divine Comedy of Thomas Merton. We plan to release the film in 2015, just in time for the 100th anniversary of Merton’s birth. Please take a few moments to watch our pitch video, read about the film and [Read More...]

A very touching response to “Hellbound?”

From a viewer who watched it last week: My husband has been taking baby-steps out of a hard-line religious system and into grace for the entire 12 years of our marriage. Actually, his departure started with a complete rejection of all Christianity for seven years prior to our meeting. I think he needed that time [Read More...]

Sacrifice, self-sacrifice and Mr. Spock

I wouldn’t identify myself as a Trekkie. I’m more of the Star Wars equivalent (a “Warsie”?). But I am a fan of the original Star Trek series as well as the movies that came out of it. My favorite film in the series is Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, which features Ricardo Montalban [Read More...]

New review of “Hellbound?” just in from The Numbers

A brief excerpt: Kevin Miller is an incredibly lucky person. He releases a movie about Hell on DVD the same week the new Pope says even Atheists go to Heaven. The topic of the movie is suddenly incredibly relevant in the Christian faith. There are quite a wide variety of interviewees in the film, although [Read More...]

“Hellbound?”–controversial, critically acclaimed, but Canadian? No way!

There’s a reason why I steer clear of government programs designed to facilitate or protect homegrown art. On one level, such programs lead to a climate of mediocrity where artists are supported not because they’re exceptionally gifted but merely because they fall into whatever category the government has deemed important this year. By way of [Read More...]

Don’t just buy it, brag about it!

I’m talking about the Hellbound? DVD, of course. Available in standard definition and Blu-ray. Special features include “To Hell and Back” featurette, starring Bill “23 Minutes in Hell” Wiese, interview outtakes, director’s commentary and French and Spanish subtitles. Best of all, these special features are only available on the DVD. You can order from our [Read More...]
