An obvious choice maybe but - The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas (2008 dir. Mark Herman based on a novel by John Boyne)

Hauntingly good film with an ending that stays with you for days. Asa Butterfield - one of the young lead actors has the most expressive eyes that draw you in through the screen.

A refreshing, different and highly emotive film about the holocaust.

rather obvious perhaps, but I think the Matrix trilogy deserves to be on there, especially the third film- I find it impossible to think about Christus Victor without using images from this movie.

I think Saved deserves an honourable mention, too.

John Smith

I think the list is 'top' religious films. Not a cgi filled feast with parodic echoes of atonement theories. Don't get me wrong, I found the final Matrix very entertaining, but I don't think it is even close to any of these films.




Well maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see how at least 3 of those listed that I have seen are religious at all.
