Last Friday I listed five spiritually rich written works of fiction. This week I share five movies I find spiritually substantive.
In no particular order:
Actually, this one is at #1 for a reason.
2. The Passion of the Christ
3. Punch-Drunk Love
Like Magnolia, also by Paul Thomas Anderson and also deeply affecting (to me, anyway).
4. Hotel Rwanda
5. Changing Lanes
Gonna throw this one in, because it's a recent movie that's underseen and underrated and was therefore too quickly forgotten. It's got Ben Affleck and Samuel Jackson, but don't hold that against it.
Could also have thrown in Amistad, Les Miserables, About a Boy, Life is Beautiful, and The Truman Show. That last one in particular is one of my favorite movies ever, and the final scene with Truman reaching the end of the "world" and stepping through always gets me.
