A Boxer and Some Briefs

Huh. Once in a while, my opinion of a movie aggravates other reviewers I really respect. That seems to have happened with The Fighter. Over at artsandfaith.com, there’s been quite a long debate about the film.

And now, today, my thoughts were quoted in an unexpected place.

Looks like the “Culture Briefs” reporter for The Washington Times noticed my Good Letters post on The Fighter.

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.
