We watched The Apostle last night. Now that’s one sweet Christian movie. One of the difficulties in making a film about faith is that movies are, well, motion pictures. They are pictures that move, and faith is an inner, invisible gift. This is why so many Catholic films about saints are worthy, but boring. The real adventure in a saint’s life is invisible and within. How do you show a saint’s interior struggles? The film maker too often resorts to having the saint kneeling before a crucifix talking out loud to Jesus. That’s just dumb. Who does that?
