  1. Not faith that needed restoring, but my goodness, what a treat all the same.

    a) Thank God for Terence Malick.

    b) I need to see Night of the Hunter again. And maybe once a week wouldn’t be too often.

  2. Must brush up on my Kurasawa. And everything else. Yes, thank god for Days of Heaven especially.
