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.
Summer blockbuster season may not seem like a natural fit for two war movies in the theater at the same time, but that’s what is on the docket this week at Seeing & Believing. First up is Dunkirk, Christopher Nolan’s lean, harrowing treatment of the WWII-era evacuation at Dunkirk. The word “masterpiece” has been used to describe the film; does the film merit such praise? Then the guys turn their attention to War for the Planet of the Apes, a film that’s farther removed from reality than Dunkirk is, yet is no less serious about its central conflict.
