Hello, Chicago!

If you were listening to WMBI in Chicago this afternoon, and go my invitation to come visit me here at LookingCloser.org… welcome!

You heard me talking about my favorite films of 2008, but hey… I only scratched the surface. I talked about Man on Wire, and Rachel Getting Married (which I just added to the list). But there are many more films that slipped by moviegoers quietly last year.

Here’s the (updated) list of my favorites from 2008.

And thanks for listening to Steve Hiller on WMBI.

    Hey

    I heard about you by listening on Moody Bible Institute. My husband and I love movies and books and think Christians get way to upset and don’t hear the story behind. We are big Harry Potter fans and see lots of movies rated R too. I look forward to checking her often.
