067: The French Dispatch, Last Night in Soho, and an exvangelical discussion of Ingmar Bergman's Winter Light
/

In this episode, I’ve got reviews of the new film from Wes Anderson, The French Dispatch, and the latest from Edgar Wright, Last Night in Soho.

After that, we start a new series called “The Art of Deconstruction: Faith, Doubt & Film.” In this series, guests come on the show, talk about the evolution of their religious life, and select a film that has been meaningful to them during spiritual transition. Most guests are “ex-vangelicals,” meaning they have moved away from evangelicalism towards something else.

My first guest is Andrew Bowcock, a filmmaker and exvangelical friend of mine who shares his story of religious deconstruction during college. He selected Ingmar Bergman’s wonderful film Winter Light, which depicts a pastor struggling with his belief in God. The film is amazing, and the conversation with Andrew is too.
