|The Seventh Seal (Bergman, 1957)
"Classics of the Christian Cinema" Series
Some of the greatest films of all time are also explicitly Christian -- series films that take Christianity seriously. There are great works of Christian art on the level of Dante, Michelangelo, Milton, Rembrandt, Bach, Dostoevsky and T. S. Eliot -- works of art even non-Christian film critics recognize as among the greatest the history of cinema has to offer. There are not Hollywood movies to be watched with one eye on your phone. Are they boring and pretentious? No, they're challenging and poetic! These are works of art that can open up a space for a profound and worshipful experience of God.
If you love beauty, truth and goodness, you must see these films. If you want to appreciate movies more and expand your artistic horizons, you must see these films. If you want to see how art can glorify God, you must see these films. These films are the pillars of Christian cinema -- the classics upon which all future Christian film must build.
