#108 – Midnight Special and Surprised By Hope

On this episode of the Reel World Theology Podcast:

ms001We ask the question, “Can someone explain Jeff Nichols?” We do our best while also talking about themes and items we see repeated throughout his budding catalog of written and directed films. How do his films straddle the border of reality and fantasy/sci-fi and why does it make us ask so many questions? Speaking of questions, is it ok to make movies where the audience gets to fill in a lot of blanks themselves? Well, we hope so because Midnight Special does just that!
