Abstract:

"This thought-provoking and inspiring work by popular film critic and Jesuit Richard Leonard explains how movies are today's parables and why people of faith need the skills to converse about them intelligently and productively. In Movies That Matter, Leonard views fifty important movies through "a lens of faith" and offers surprising insights on the spiritual dimension of each film. From Finding Nemo to Gandhi to The Godfather, Leonard's informed, Christian point of view guides us to a new appreciation of both the films and our own spiritual beliefs. Leonard also lists teachable moments found in each movie and provides questions for personal reflection or group dialogue." "In addition, Leonard teaches today's religious educators, parents, and film buffs how to "read" a film with the eyes of faith, and how to meaningfully engage with others through the media of film. He offers realistic advice on such topics as: valuing our story, sex and violence in films, ratings, and how to be a critical consumer. This entertaining and reliable guide will enrich your movie-watching experience. Book jacket."--Jacket.

Movies that matter matters

da chelseapost (Utenti WorldCat. Pubblicazioni 2015-12-04) Buono Link permanente

Well-written entries, usually a page or two, on each film. Short, sweet, and to the point, with easy to understand bullet points for discussions.
