Fantastic list! Check out "Under the Moonlight," Iran 2001.
Hi ... I do not know if it's what you want, but I remembered...The sunset Limited....and...The Man from Earth.
I will need to look into these movies more in depth! Thanks for this
thank you for this! too many excellent spiritual movies aren't yet on mubi :(
Great list as usual, Kenji. It's so depressing a film like Moustapha Akkad's The Message isn't on MUBI yet.
I have seen and like many of these films!
thank you for this list! it's inspiring...
I really like this list!!!!! especially when you included Blue!!!! one of my fav movie!!!
Lovely list, must see the rest of the films on here because these are my kinda films.
ah thanks, i've not seen it- i may include, certainly if i see and like it, or if others think it essential, but don't want to include everything that fits, rather the most notable films.
don't know if this fits, but Pedro Almodovar's Dark Habits takes place in a convent with several nuns.
Metropolis fits the bill more than....Gran Torino (and I'm not biased, hehe), a superb recommendation for you Kenji is The Shepherds of Calamity which takes places on Easter. El Topo is also another idea?
ah, interesting suggestion, there is a religious aspect
what about "Metropolis"? You think it should be on a list such as this?
well, i have to say i did do my list a while back and just added a film- not wanting to tread on your toes on the same path!
oh Kenji, why'd you have to go and make a better list than me? :P You could fit 'The Holy Mountain' on here though?
I´ve now seen the first part of Jacques Rivette´s "Joan the Maid". It´s one of the most wonderful films depicting religious belief I´ve seen so far. I´m very much looking forward to watch "The Prisons".
