April 4th, 2010

Today is Easter and a week of Passover is nearly over. A heartfelt “Happy [Your Spring Holiday Here].”

In honor of the holiday(s), I’m suggesting, in no particular order, some Easter/Christian-themed and/or Jewish/Passover-themed films for your cinema satisfaction.

Easter Parade

The Ten Commandments

The Song of Bernadette

Fiddler on the Roof

A Nun’s Story


Goodbye Columbus

The Greatest Story Ever Told


Of course there are countless religious-themed films, embracing the cinema spectrum from elegy to screed. I’m sure everyone has a favorite religious-themed film (or a film with religion as an important element). What’s yours?

    From my standpoint, the best movie about religion is The Invention of Lying.

    Great suggestion! I seem to have left out religious comedies (an oxymoron?) entirely. My favorite would have to be “Monty Python’s Life of Brian.”

    With the current news, I think fondly of the Catholic fashion show in Fellini’s “Roma.”. It’s hard to beat cardinals on roller skates! 😉
