The Cinephiliacs


Jul 1, 2013

Since film discussion has been on the Internet, so has Victor Morton. The very opinionted and didactic film blogger joins Peter for a journey through his cinephile life. Victor tells tales of growing up in both Scotland and Texas before finally finding a voice on the UseNet film groups of the early Internet. The two then discuss his approach to cinema as a political conservative, his approach to viewing films through a Catholic prism, and the continuing wonders of Romanian cinema. Finally, the two dive deep into Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne's Rosetta, which might not have any specific Christian motifs on its surface, but is so clearly a film that is deeply, deeply spiritual.
