Frank Capra Revisited

I have just read probably the best film review I have ever read. If you have the time (it's long but well worth it) read Rod Bennet's incredible essay on Frank Capra at Godspy. If you haven't seen It's A Wonderful Life or any of the other Capra films he discusses, it may not be as profound but if you know these classic films, I promise you that after reading this essay you will never hear the expressions "Capra-esque" or "Capra-corn" in the same way again! This essay and the film(s) it discusses will definitely find their way into my Theology and Film class next year. Click here to read it.

How did I not knwo you ran a film a theology subject?! I would have taken that! But I'm out of electives!

The review was too long for me to read right now. Taking a break from an assignment right now. Too much work!!!!
