A Nice Antidote To The Christian Films Coming Out This Year
23 March 2014 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

2014 is the year of the Christian movie . So far we've seen SON OF GOD and GOD'S NOT DEAD do relatively well at the box office while next month sees NOAH released which I'm certainly looking forward to if only to see another film by Darren Aronofsky the most interesting and talented director of recent years and we'll also be getting EXODUS by Ridley Scott later in the year . It seems God has the Midas touch these days but that's probably why he was invented and it's nice to see a film come along where Christians aren't shown as sappy happy clappy naive bible kissers . KNIFE POINT from 2009 is that movie

I enjoyed this short but this wasn't just down to any sort of message or agenda it's giving out but simply because Carlo Mirabella Davis has made a short film done in the spirit and ethos of indie film making and perhaps on a meta-physical the principles America was built upon . It has a rather slow pace but this is in no way a criticism and considering I watched THE MUMMY:TOMB OF THE DRAGON EMPEROR I know what approach I prefer . The slow pace allows the audience to speculate as to how the story might progress . It starts off with Gerry , a knife salesman packing his wares and instantly you're thinking that knives like guns are weapons and perhaps this might tie in with the story . Throughout the narrative there's a slight feel of portent dread about to happen and manifest itself which it does at the climax . Until we get there we have a slow burning understated drama of a man on a journey with some strangers whose silence is disconcerting and is in keeping with the feel of the film . It might be slow , it might be obvious , but I was reminded of " Beware of those who believe in God for they are capable of anything " . Let's also not forget that anyone who refers to Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin as being " Christians " when in fact they were deists is not to be trusted
