I love Barbara’s wit and perspective on things. We too often in the Christian realm either fight everything, especially post-modernism and all that. Or, we watch vulgar films like the one mentioned in the name of engaging the culture. A choice quote from her post:
I feel absolutely sure that a legion of critics – and certainly Christians! – will passionately defend this film. They will relish its "fresh satiric critique " of post-modernity. They will say things about how wonderful it was for the family to end the film accepting each other in a stirring moment of loyalty and love. They will say that this movie is clearly just not my kind of taste, and that engaging culture means that we shouldn’t get stuck on little things like vulgarity, profanity, crassness and the exaltation of meaninglessness.
I appreciate her perspective. Unfortunately, I may wait for the DVD and actually watch it so I can understand more of what she is actually saying here. Maybe.
