as you may remember, i lead a monthly film discussion group called Reel Life: discussions on film and faith that meets the first friday of each month at my church. this has been a bit of an experiment of mine to see if people are interested in such a format as a way not only to engage the stories that our culture is telling, but also to respond to them communally as people of faith. we've been meeting since september, and so far it has been pretty good. we have watched movies from a variety of genres, but mostly they've been pretty 'safe,' if you know what i mean.
tonight, not so much.
tonight we are watching crash. if you've seen it then you know that its a bit rough. so i'm interested to see how it goes: watching this movie with a bunch of church folks. it should be fun!
in all seriousness, though, i was just wondering if any of you had anything of interest you would like to contribute to our conversation tonight by way of this blog. if you saw this movie,
-did you like it?
-did you hate it?
-how did you respond?
-do you think it is accurate in its portrayal of how we interact with people who are different than us?
-what is the value of such a story for us as people of faith?
okay, so i don't expect many of you to respond to this because i tend to get more comments when i write about things like chocolate, so i'm not expecting a ton of feedback here, but if you saw this movie and can remember what you thought about it, let us know!
