Dogma ★★★★½

"Mankind got it all wrong by taking a good idea and building a belief structure on it"
Kevin Smith achieved something marvelous. He did make a movie about religion, it is funny, it makes fun about religion, but is not disrespectful. Until i was 20 i believed in god, i went to a jesuit-catholic school and even though i would see myself as an atheist now i still have respect for the jesuit-christian thinking. I have great problems with people disrespecting other peoples religion, like Richard Dorkins and his disciple do. So i was surprised how Smith made fun of religion but not while disrespecting it. In the end he shows a somewhat positive picture of god and believe. Specially the monologs he gave Rufus really connected with me or to say it with the late Alan Rickman: "Good Lord, that little Stoner has a point!"
