Video Some movies online that I can recommend
First up...Bergman's "Silence Of God Trilogy".

The first was the Oscar winner "Through A Glass Darkly" which depicted God as a spider...as envisioned by a schizophrenic, young woman. Bergman HATED the ending which makes a statement about god that he thought was a simplistic copout. He's right...but the film is still worth watching...





To "correct" that ending, he made "Winter Light". It deals with a minister who has lost his faith. It's a short, powerful film in which "god's silence" is dealt with head on. If you thought that Mel Gibson's "The Passion" was nothing but a snuff film, then you will appreciate a scene towards the end where "The Passion" (in the Biblical sense) is put into perspective. It should bring a smile to an atheist's face...even though the scene is dead serious.





The final film is "The Silence". In it, god doesn't even exist in the abstract. He just ain't there! I won't post the video here, as there is an ahead of its time sex scene...and I don't want to be kicked off the board. It can be easily found though.
