I'm looking for films (or books) like Miyazaki's work: full of emotion, where the world is literally wonderful and every new street or path could contain something magical, touching, and unusual. Ideally more Spirited Away than Princess Mononoke, but either mood works. I'm already a big fan of magical realism novels and have Earthsea & Moebius on my to-read list.
I want to see some WWII-era propaganda (or at least pro-war, pro-service) films on DVD, especially those with musical interludes in the style of the Andrews Sisters. Any recommendations beyond Buck Privates, which I unfortunately cannot easily find in Canada? [more inside]
I really want to watch some films that explicitly riff on New Testament events/verses/speeches, but which aren't "New Testament Movies," like Jesus of Montreal, Passion of the Christ, etc. The closest I've found yet is the "Two Cathedrals" episode of The West Wing. Catholic/Orthodox liturgy, unless based directly on the New Testament, isn't quite right. Could you suggest some movies or TV episodes?
Can you recommend any really good novels (or movies) that portray something in the Old or New Testament in a new way, or which add to the Old/New Testament, such that they could be considered 'modern Biblical apocrypha'? [more inside]
