Essential films of 2006 for theologians

Biblical scholar and film aficionado Tyler Williams has posted his definitive list of Essential Films of 2006 for Theologians (following the success of last year’s post).

I haven’t seen some of these yet, but it looks like a very good list. Some of my favourite films of the year are there (Babel, Borat, The Departed, and especially Children of Men); and I might also have expected films like United 93, Sophie Scholl, and the delightful Thank You for Smoking to have made the list as well. I haven’t yet seen the German film The Lives of Others, but I’ve heard that it’s outstanding too.

For those of you who enjoy the finer things in life, I should also mention some excellent Aussie films of 2006: Candy, Jindabyne, Ten Canoes, and (the most crappy film ever made) Kenny.
