Neighborhood “Womblike Space”

Movie-watching involves the whole person. In a look at last year’s “best religious movies,” critic John Anderson noted in America Magazine:
Under ideal moviegoing conditions, the viewer surrounded by others still inhabits his or her own womblike space and occupies as receptive a state regarding matters spiritual as he or she is likely to do in the course of an otherwise secular day.
Some movies considered “were endowed with a sense of aspiration that was inspirational.”
