Specials: Superman footage!; heist flick for Cusack, Thornton.

Today’s specials:

  • The trailer for the new Martin Scorsese film about Bob Dylan: No Direction Home.
    Okay, add THAT to my Christmas list as well.
  • John Cusack and Billy Bob Thornton are starring in a heist film directed by Harold Ramis. Cusack hasn’t had anything really memorable for a while. Hopefully this will get him back on track. Oh how I long for a sequel to Grosse Point Blank.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.
