Christianity Today has an article today that reflects on the movie reviews given by Christian media for Brokeback Mountain. Author Jeffrey Overstreet doesn’t pay attention to the gadflys like Stephen Bennett but instead focuses on more reputable sources.
His review shows that most Christian reviewers recognize the technical brilliance of the film along with the moving character development. The interesting aspect of this article is the wide range of response given by reviewers who start with the premise that “homosexuality is considered a sin”.
For those interested in the nuances now seen in certain Christian influences, this can be a thought provoking read. Overall, the reviews were surprisingly favorable.
