Dear all,

I hope I'm posting in the right forum. I wanted some suggestions of good Christian, especially Orthodox movies I can watch during lent. I already have the passion of the Christ, The gospel of John, and the Jesus movie and am looking for more.  Thank you. Smiley

Ostrov (The Island) is an Orthodox movie (Russian with subtitles).
Mysteries of the Jesus Prayer is a documentary/travelogue (mostly) about Orthodox monasticism.
I recommend them both.

Even though it's of the fantasy genre, I try to watch Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy during Lent. I've made LOTR my Lenten reading the last several years, but I haven't been doing that this year because of other interests competing for my attention.

Since folks' here have a narrow view of "Christian film", I've been thinking of something to suggest.

The relatively recent Of Gods and Men is strongly recommended.

It is very slow. I would recommend though the recent documentary Quaerere Deum about the monastery of San Benedetto in Norcia, Italy. It is filmed in a similar manner as Into Great Silence but it flows a lot better and it is shorter. The whole thing is on youtube.

I happen to like The Robe and the Alfred Newman score. Then again I thought TLTOC was a beautiful and rewarding parable.

I wasn't gong to bring that one up. But that is decent low-budget, zero-time film making and a laudable score as well. The hyperdox here might get offended.

EDIT: FWIW, it was probably THE thing that took the incredible chip off my shoulder I had against Christ.

Nothing wrong with slow.

It's called having a narrative.

I am sure it is awesome for drifting off to a nap or helping romanticize monasticism in the minds of some.

The Last Temptation of Christ.

Didn't make me want to be a Christian, but made me feel like an ass for some of (checks forum) stuff I thought and said about Christ.

If I get my life in some sorta order here, maybe I'll see if I have a copy and give it a whirl.

Well, I really actually enjoyed Into Great Silence. Perhaps I'm generally a tedious person. I also confess to loving the LOTR films but watching them in Lent, as Lenten movies, is a bit much for me.

An interesting movie is "The Straight Story".  I like watching it this time of year since it is a good tale of forgiveness as well as dealing with our own weaknesses as we enter the last days of our lives.

I have a certain appreciation for Christian kitsch of all stripes — Christian Motorcycle Association Bibles, “Armor of God” play suits, cheesy rapture movies, Larry Norman music, etc. Evangelicalism strives to be bland but in fact generates a great version of American folk religion.

...But no, I would not actually watch this movie, not even to MST3K it.

Andrei Rublev and Solaris directed by Andrei Tarkovsky.

I heard a podcast on AFR once suggesting watching all 6 of Tarkovsky's movies during Lent (which is something I'd like to try, but not likely to find 'em at any of the movie stores where I live, and I'm not into netflix).

Ain't seen the above. My Priest keeps trying to give me the Rublev. He is a film nut like myself. I just gotta wait till I have that sorta attention to give to something.

Thanks for the reminder.

Cannot you not see I struggle enough?

Please be kind.
You mean you wouldn't watch three hours of a guy walking around, reading his Bible and praying?

I watched Lord of the Rings.  I assure you, I can take a movie about people walking around.

I swear and this is no joke, this IS how I saw LotR.

Everyone in theater had no idea why I was constantly laughing till this genius distilled it.

A truer artist there has never been.

Andrei Rublev and Solaris directed by Andrei Tarkovsky.

I heard a podcast on AFR once suggesting watching all 6 of Tarkovsky's movies during Lent (which is something I'd like to try, but not likely to find 'em at any of the movie stores where I live, and I'm not into netflix).

I loved Solaris the book but the movie was tortuously slow and boring.

When in doubt, say: "you lack the proper φρόνημα"

When are they going to make "Way of a Pilgrim" into a movie?

Why do you all attempt to provoke me?
