    Stations of the Cross

    timbouwhuis.nl/paper-religious-sacrifice-and-the-rejection-of-secular-conversion-in-kreuzweg/

    This paper is the result of my efforts for a Religious Studies master course on conversion. My intention has been to combine theoretical reflections on conversion [‘can you also convert to secularity?’] with a textual & formal analysis of a specific film (Kreuzweg, or Stations of the Cross, Dietrich Brüggemann, 2014). I argue that this film perpetuates a rigid binary between ‘the religious’ and ‘the secular’ and I question the ideological implications underneath.

    Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

    ★★

    Suddenly the dragon from Battle of the Five Armies got blue.

    P.s. it was fun to see how a British writer contrasted a dark American context (ministry of magic) with a lighter one (ministry of magic, again). Indeed, Redmayne's pets are less harmful than Depp's make-up.

    I thought Russell Crowes 'Dr. Jekyll' was the worst thing about this movie, until I fully realized the incapable director was actually working towards a new (dark) movie universe...

    Tom, please sign up for another Magnolia or Eyes Wide Shut before it's not only Jack Reacher who can never go back.

    mother!

    ★★★★★

    I wrote an extensive (English) essay, in which I present my (allegorical) interpretation of mother!.

    This is one of my favorite movies of the year.
