From the review, an interesting new film just opened in the U.S.
Higher Ground (2011)

"The film . . . is about the conflict between skepticism and religious faith, but it does not treat that battle as an either/or, winner-take-all proposition. Movies about belief and believers frequently succumb to woozy piety or brittle contempt, but 'Higher Ground' belongs . . . among the elect. Focused with sympathetic intensity on the ordeal of a single soul, it illuminates, as though from within, a complex spiritual struggle."

A.O. Scott gives good review. I'll probably see this one.

Religious disputes are like arguments in a madhouse over which inmate really is Napoleon.

Very interesting. Thanks for the heads up...I'll probably be seeing it too.

Hey.

Looks interesting. Here's the trailer.

Also, Bill Irwin is the bomb. He's likely worth the price of admission.

Peace and Love and Empathy,

Matt
