Theology & Film - Podcast Lecture 11

Film Review - "Dead Man Walking"

by Dave Porter. One of the best things a film can do is make us reflect on the various convictions and beliefs which we hold through the course of our daily lives. In this light it must be said that the film, Dead Man Walking, is rich in both theological and philosophical material for this very examination. This is important since in our contemporary entertainment culture - our world of iPods and Xboxes - there is precious little of this examination taking place. With that in mind I want to review this film, at least from a Christian perspective, in...

Film Review - "Dead Man Walking"

Theology & Film - Podcast Lecture 10

Many of the films we've been watching in class have depicted the realities of life in a decidedly unnerving manner.

Theology & Film - Podcast Lecture 9

Adventuring into the city, Kate Tennikoff and Drea Daniels met together with Australian actor Veronica Sywak to take a look at the unique challenges faced by those in the film industry and to discuss her new film, The Jammed, which is currently showing around the country. NB: This podcast was recorded on Sydney University lawn, so there is a bit of background noise to contend with, as well as Kate's not-so-experienced interviewing skills. For your podcast assignment this week, after listening to the podcast below, as well Ben McEachen's review of Dogville (they're both short), comment on the role that...
