The Catholic Church’s attitudes towards the cinema has always been one of esteem and interest. Films can illumine the Word of God and faith can reveal values in films. Both pulpit and screen are means of spreading God’s Word and helping people become better versions of themselves. In the document “100 Years of Cinema“, the Pontifical Council for Social Communications provides a detailed guideline on training in the interpretation of films in order “to educate our youth in the correct understanding of the mass media, and in our particular case, of the cinema”.
Today’s post features 12 film review websites with a Catholic perspective. Some of them have classification systems according to the perceived standards of their respective countries and cultures. Some offer more detailed reviews which not only inform but also guide and educate. All of the reviews are written by Catholic film critics and enthusiasts. If I missed any relevant site please let me know via comments.
