Hollywood, when it goes into the realms of History and Faith, often does justice to neither, getting the History wrong and making a complete hash of the presentation of religious faith on the screen. I am pleased to report that Paul: Apostle of Christ defies this usual litany of failure. My review is below, and the usual caveat as to spoilers applies:
I shut down the law mines every Good Friday. My bride and I and our son went to see Paul: Apostle of Christ. A review will appear in the next few days, but I wanted to advise our readers to see this film. It is the most powerful film I have seen since the Passion of the Christ and it reminded me of why I am a Catholic. It makes a grand spiritual meditation for the Triduum. See the film, you will not regret it.
