Christ at the Cinema

Thanks to Jonah Goldberg's piece on Groundhog Day, there's been a lot of talk about movies that have implicit themes that Christians will find relevant. Drew talked about it, as did Gideon Strauss.

Christians and film buffs interested in spiritually significant films should check out the Top 100 Spiritually Significant Films as established by the Arts and Faith Forum. This is a very challenging list, but worth exploring if we are to adequately engage the culture. Also, the Looking Closer blog is invaluable.

I'm not worried anymore. I've always felt this movie has such a remarkable message. I keep watching it time and time again and the message of hope becomes stronger. But I am also conflicted. I see the tragedy here, because we don't have the luxury of living our life over and over again until we get it right.

Isn't that the point, though? That we only have one chance?
