A lively, discerning guide to what’s good, beautiful, and true at the movies “Richard Leonard, SJ, expertly guides readers through some of the most popular recent films and shows us how even the most unlikely movies can encourage us to pray and draw closer to the divine . . . fascinating, lively, and often witty.” —James Martin, SJ, author of My Life with the Saints This thought-provoking and inspiring work by popular film critic and Jesuit Richard Leonard explains how movies are today’s parables and why people of faith need the skills to converse about them intelligently and productively. In Movies That Matter, Leonard views fifty important movies through “a lens of faith” and offers surprising insights on the spiritual dimension of each film. From Finding Nemo to Gandhi to The Godfather, Leonard’s informed, Christian point of view guides us to a new appreciation of both the films and our own spiritual beliefs. Leonard also lists teachable moments found in each movie and provides questions for personal reflection or group dialogue.

In addition, Leonard teaches today’s religious educators, parents, and film buffs how to “read” a film with the eyes of faith, and how to meaningfully engage with others through the media of film. He offers realistic advice on such topics as: valuing our story, sex and violence in films, ratings, and how to be a critical consumer. This entertaining and reliable guide will enrich your movie-watching experience. “Movies That Matter is a book every person in pastoral ministry will want to use as he or she seeks to be relevant and faithful in a media world.” —Rose Pacatte, FSP, coauthor Lights, Camera, . . .

This is an even-handed and well-written exposition of the spiritual meanings of 54 feature films produced between 1966 and 2004. The titles fall into several genres and all rating categories. A few foreign films and one documentary are included. The author, a Jesuit priest-scholar, analyzes the films from a Catholic Christian viewpoint, pointing out the salient virtues of each and offering criticism where appropriate. An introductory essay gives an overall template to the study of any film.

Makes movies worth seeing.... points out what you may have missed.

Ausstan
This book is among the worse books on theology/religion/faith and film out there. It makes huge leaps (including numerology) to tell you what each film means. No room for interpretative questioning in this author's "lens of faith." It's a lens of dogma that is not intellectually supportable. Avoid this book, unless you want to be told "the only meaning" of a film. Not for bright, independent thinkers of faith.
