Oscar Nominated Films Part Two: Birdman (or the Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)

Ben Witherington - Bible and Culture - Thu, 02/05/2015 - 03:33
So I went to the movie theater one snowy afternoon and saw two films that both had drums beating all the way through them. Now I have drums beating in my head.

Switzerland, I don't want to be nuetral anymore. Peace-filled, but not nuetral. Solid, but not in nuetral.

It was a crazy conversation to be having, and one we didn’t really expect to have during a just-the-two-of-us lunch date. Shawn had wondered, out loud, if God was moving us on, if we were...

Oscar Nominated Films Part One: Whiplash

Ben Witherington - Bible and Culture - Wed, 02/04/2015 - 03:59

And it comes as something of a surprise that one of those films is a jazz film about a young drummer played by Miles Teller, co-starring J.K.Simmons (of Farmer’s Insurance commericial fame) as the abusive teacher. Considering that only about 3% [Read More...]
