Review by Nate
In 1968 Roger Ebert characterized 2001: A Space Odyssey as a film that “fails on the human level but succeeds magnificently on a cosmic scale.” I imagine this was due to the thorny task of blending an epic tale of space travel with the kind of intimacy necessary for a human connection. Almost five decades later, Christopher Nolan has thrown his hat in the ring to create his own space odyssey.
Review by Nathan Sala with A Clear Lens
Before I get into the review I think I should say a few things. As a biblical theist I greatly desire the body of Christ to engage the culture as best we can. Obviously, a great way that we can do this is by utilizing one of the culture’s own venues: the cinema. But we should not be making Christian movies (that is, those movies with premises that trade specifically in Christian themes) simply so that we can say there are such things as Christian movies. Our films should be of a quality on par with the best that Hollywood can produce.
