Movie Musings


Many movie makers fill a role not unlike the canary in the mine.  They tell us what is happening usually before we can see it for ourselves. In that sense the best movie makers are among the prophets of our time reflecting back to us the underbelly of our culture.

Admittedly, not all movies contribute in the same way or to the same extent. But among them are voices worth listening to.

Periodically, brief reflections on various movies and DVDs will be posted here. These reflections are not reviews but rather insights, learning, and reflections about the great stories of the age. 

If you would like to have a movie musing considered for publication here, please send it, with your name and E-mail address, to Movie Musings.
