Of Gods and Men -- New Movie

I have not seen Of Gods and Men, but after reading a review from Christian-oriented MovieGuide and watching the clip below, I knew a significant percentage of my readers would want to know about it. According to MovieGuide, there are 3 obscenities, no profanities, moderate violence, and zero sex or nudity in the movie.

The film depicts an actual event in Algeria, the Muslim invasion and massacre of the inhabitants of a monastery.

Hadn't heard of it, but it looks good. And thanks for the recommendation of Defiance--great movie! Really touches important issues.

Warrior,
As I'm sure you noticed, Defiance is more for instruction and reflection than for entertainment. I know a young man -- I think you'd like him -- who says he wants to raise his sons to be able to take to the forest in order to fight tyranny. Sober thoughts that look for darker days ahead.

Yes, I did notice that. Not a bad thing, IMO, rather nice on occasion.
