Tonight on Facebook, she posted the following comments about Blue Like Jazz :
So, I walked out of Blue Like Jazz before the midpoint. It wasn't my thing. (My thing being mastery of craft united to an unusual quality of depth.) If I had to sum up what I saw of the movie I would say it is about a caricature of Christianity who encounters caricatures of secularism, and they both offer each other banality which everybody on screen seems to think is profound and presumably eventually leads to a catharsis.
I am not going to watch any more of these movies coming out of the Christian sub-culture. It's not what I do.
And P.P.S. Uh, writer. Do your damn homework. Catholics don't use packaged plastic communion cups at Mass. Good grief.
Nice to know I'm not the only one who's been seeing the caricatures.
I think you can follow the conversation here on Facebook.
