With the Academy Awards fast approaching, I thought I would also provide a list of my “Top Ten Films of 2005 for Theologians.” You will notice that some of films have a 2004 release date; these are films that had an initial limited release in 2004 (usually at a film festival) but had a more extensive public release in 2005 (including DVD releases).

  • Batman Begins (Christopher Nolan, 2005; IMDb).
  • Born into Brothels: Calcutta's Red Light Kids (Zana Briski and Ross Kauffman, 2004; IMDb).
  • Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe (Andrew Adamson, 2005; IMDb).
  • The Constant Gardener (Fernando Meirelles, 2005; IMDb).
  • Crash (Paul Haggis, 2004; IMDb).
  • Downfall (Der Untergang; Oliver Hirschbiegel, 2004; IMDb).
