An authentic story with nuanced characters and complicated relationships, The Case for Christ is unlike any other explicitly Christian film you’ve seen.
I have not always thought well of Christian films. While I appreciate the efforts that Christian directors and screenwriters are making, most Christian films have been ineffective as films, and therefore, ineffective as Christian films.
But Risen, while far from perfect, puts Christian film on a new level.
Challenges to faith by a college professor are one thing. But what happens when the teacher herself is being challenged?
As far as lives go, Linda has a pretty terrible one.
I tend to be kind of cranky about Christian films. I usually love the messages that they contain, but they’re made as an evangelistic tool, yet executed so that only those who are already Christians want to see them. They also tend to have amateur actors, and the overall quality of the film makes it hard to watch all the way through, which only causes further divide in Christian media rather than enabling Christians to reach non-Christians with their art. Mom’s Night Out, however, is a step in the right direction.
