NOTES:

Jeffrey talks about Bono and U2 making music and how they won’t make something that is just good, they struggle for something more, the moment they say when God walks through the room.

 

Scott Derrickson will be directing Doctor Strange

 

“C.S. Lewis once observed that while many people use art, only a very few receive it. The texts that get called scriptures by various religious traditions are often used by individuals (mostly quoted out of context) to pepper speeches, buttress bad arguments, and, on occasion, to avoid awareness of responsibility for our actions. We read and quote selectively to better justify what we’ve already decided to do. Where is the self-awareness in any of this, the sense that our scriptures can, and should, change the way we think and act? … Are we up for a redeeming word?

We only receive art when we let it call our own lives into question. If the words of Jesus of Nazareth, for instance, strike us as comfortable and perfectly in tune with our own confident common sense, our likes and dislikes, our budgets, and our actions toward strangers and foreigners, then receiving the words of Jesus is probably not what we’re doing. We may quote a verse, put it in a PowerPoint presentation, or even intone it loudly with an emotional, choked-up quiver, but if it doesn’t scandalize or bother us, challenging our already-made-up minds, we aren’t really receiving it.”

- David Dark, The Sacredness of Questioning Everything

“It takes a very long time to become young,” shared by @Overstweet on the @filmbacktv podcast, originally from #Picasso

 

“The Man in the Arena” Quote

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” - Theodore Roosevelt from “Citizenship in a Republic”

 

Check out something amazing thanks to Pixar with this The Incredible clip

 

Thanks to at @sirwmichaelw for sending us a question on Twitter!

“Do you try to separate personal preference from what you think is objectively good, or do you hope that you're educated in film enough that those are one and the same?”

 

“The great missing piece of movie-going experience in America is that we watch something the same way we are eating the popcorn in the seat. We’re just sort of shoveling it down our throats and then we go out and do something else…” - Jeffrey Overstreet

 

Jeffrey’s book recommendation: Julia Cameron’s “The Artist’s Way”

Claire’s book recommendation: Judy Greer’s “I Don't Know What You Know Me From: My Life as a Co-Star”

 

Films Referenced - Ratatouille, and Inside Out
