Top 100 spiritually significant films

I'm not really a film person, but if you're seeking an interesting rental this summer you might want to look at Arts&Faith.com's list of Top 100 Spiritually Significant Films. They explain the genesis of the list here. Arts&Faith also runs a forum that is worth dropping in on now and again.

It's interesting to me that credibility for the idea that movies merit theological discussion has been so much more easily won than for the idea that music does. Sites and books that offer Christian reflection on "secular" film have been widespread for several years; those that take music as seriously, much less so. And you hardly ever see one of those "golly-gee-whiz that pastor quoted [insert band name here]" articles about people using film, either.
