This Trojan Horse: First Reformed (2017)
On the newest episode of the Stage & Story podcast, Pastor Brandon McCulloch and I look at a deeply dark and religious film about a priest's loss of faith. First Reformed was ranked as one of the Top 10 films of 2018 by a well-known Christian movie reviewer. So . . .
1. Is this a great film for the thinking Christian?
2. Is the filmmaker upholding or subverting the Christian faith?
Pastor Brandon and I dive into these questions and more. Two warnings:
1. We do offer spoilers of this film in this episode.
2. This is not a film for young people. It contents mature content (language, violence, and some sexuality).
