    Very interesting list of 10–I especially agree with the top 4. Sad to see that God Grew Tired of Us isn’t mentioned. Dan in Real Life, I thought, sent messages that were far too scattered (maybe even schizophrenic) to be considered redeeming. And I’m not sure how The Painted Veil gets counted as a 2007 film, but I liked it.

    Maybe it’s officially considered a 2006 film, but I was surprised that “Black Snake Moan” wasn’t on the list. It’s a harsh films in a lot of ways, but in my opinion it’s the best Christian movie of recent years. Talk about a tale of redemption!
