Friday specials:

DEFENDING MUNICH
Here’s a forceful, well-composed defense of Steven Spielberg’s Munich, which I think is his most restrained, mature, and challenging film since… oh… 1987′s Empire of the Sun. (It’s at Salon, so if you don’t subscribe, just click and watch the brief advertisement so you can get access to the whole article.) This one’s going in my Top Ten of 2005.

G.K. CHESTERTON … THE BLOG
If Chesterton was blogging today, he’d be my first Web stop of the day. Here’s the next best thing.

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.
