Movies Are Prayers by Josh Larsen, Free for CAPC Members
In Movies Are Prayers, Josh Larsen exemplifies how critical engagement with a film can be an act of neighbor-love.
The guys take it down a notch after the blockbusters of last week. First they review American Animals, director Bart Layton’s follow-up to The Impostor. Does Layton’s trademark gamesmanship around the boundary between reality and recreation pay off in his film based on a true story centered around a heist by college students? Wade and Kevin then turn to a zombie apocalypse, Australia-style, with their review of the Martin Freeman-starring Netflix film Cargo.
