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.

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.

    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.
