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.

    It is a horrible title, isn’t it?

    I saw a sneak preview of this a couple months ago. The writing isn’t great and the performances are uneven (some good, some bad), but John Schneider was great — and in all honesty, he’s the main reason I went. :-) So it has that going for it, anyway.

    Well done! Many of my favorites are here and I’ll be looking up on DVD the ones here I didn’t get to see.

    I hope you get to see “Volver” soon. I saw it this weekend and it instantly vaulted into my top 3 or 4 films of 2006, and this is coming from someone who hasn’t been a fan of Almodovar. But this is a lovely, gentle movie.

    I don’t think anyone is surprised by your first choice, Jeffrey. :)

    I am a bit surprised (and pleased, actually) by your second choice, though.

    Interesting list. There’s a lot of those I haven’t see (didn’t get to the theater a lot in 2006), and a lot that I may never see. But there’s definitely a few there that I’m watching for the DVDs.
