Faith and Movies

These books look interesting.

Anyone used them, or know what movies are suggested?

From the synopsis ~

Faith and life come together in this unique approach to the lectionary. Each Sunday's readings are seen through the lens of a particular movie that highlights themes or issues emphasized in the Gospel. It proposes practical points for reflection, conversation and personal growth, in addition to insightful film analysis.

Movie synopsis and commentary include background information on films, actors, directors and writers
Key scenes and themes for easy reference in group settings
Useful for homilists, teachers, young adult groups, pastoral ministers, discussion leaders, or anyone intrigued by deeper meaning in the movies

There are three books in the series, one for each Cycle of Sunday Scriptures - Cycle A, B or C.

And some reviews at Amazon.
