MOVING PICTURES: THE SEASON'S VERY BEST FILMS

This was written for the Winter Holiday Worship directory, but includes
films for winter spirituality in general. So, even as Christmas passes -
this list still has plenty of worthy, useful and helpful films to see. -

MOVING PICTURES: THE SEASON'S VERY BEST FILMS

Television has replaced the fireplace as the focal point for gatherings of
family and friends. But meaningful holiday observations can happen there,
too. Here are some conventional (and not-so-conventional) movies to watch
during this holiday season.

These films were intentionally chosen for spiritual or moral challenges they
pose. There are choices for the religious and non-religious viewer. All can
deepen appreciation for the holiday season. The films are listed in
alphabetic order not in order of quality or preference (my choice for the
three best holiday classics have been separated at the end).

Every attempt was made to choose quality films, technically as well as
artistically, so these can be considered the best. And all of the movies on
this list are available through the South Central Library System which
includes all public libraries in Madison and nearby communities. Enjoy.
