Film critics and cinephiles at the Arts and Faith Conversation have revised their list of 100 Spiritually Significant Films, and the picture has changed dramatically.
Michael Leary offers a fantastic commentary on the list over at The Matthews House Project.
How many of the Top 100 have you seen? What inclusions are you most pleased to see there? What’s missing from the list?
I didn’t participate in the voting for this year’s list, partly out of frustration over understanding the definition of a “spiritually significant film.” Many films that I think are spiritually significant do not deal blatantly with religious material. Many are spiritually significant particularly through their aesthetics, rather than their narrative.
Still, the films on this list are indeed profound pieces of work, and while I’m still not sure exactly what the list is, I appreciate a great many of the titles included.
