Top 100 Films
Seeing David Gibson’s piece on Top 10 Rules of Writing made me realize that you-all might be interested in the just-released “Arts & Faith Top 100 Films” list.
And yes, it’s been released in the week leading up to the Oscars for that very reason….
The list grows out of an online community, ArtsandFaith.com, which the journal I edit, IMAGE, recently adopted.
The posts on the site are wide-ranging in terms of art forms and interests but it’s become a haven for a lot of cinephiles and they’ve been producing Top 100 Films lists now for a number of years.
This year’s list is pretty amazing. While the list is specifically intended to highlight films that have some sort of engagement with spiritual or religious matters, you’re not going to find The Ten Commandments or The Passion of the Christ here.
It may skew a bit toward the more challenging end of the cinematic realm, but it’s a thoroughly global list and there are very few duds on it. IMHO.
Check it out here.
I’d be curious to know what people think of the list. Like/dislike? Which of your favorites got left out?
