Belierfnet has nominated five fine films for best spiritual film of the year. But the list leaves out the winner: Milk.
The movie tells the story of Harvey Milk, the gay
“Without hope, life is not worth living. You’ve got to give them Hope!” is a refrain we hear Harvey Milk repeat throughout this film and he did give people hope, and continues to give people hope. Unfortunately, my guess is that a movie about a civil rights leader who died a martyr for the liberation of his people from any community aside from the gay community would have made this most spiritual list.
Milk became the embodiment of a people who were not going to let religious or social oppression destroy who they were and how they loved. Spiritual is not just about how you feel in the inside – spiritual is as spiritual does. “Justice is what Love looks like in Public” – Cornel West.
Write in Milk for best spiritual film of the year.
