The Bunyip’s back and waxing amusingly about flicks for the faithful.
RELIGION has inspired some memorable films over the years, and if there is any wisdom to be drawn from the oeuvre it is that resulting eruptions of devotion may run in inverse proportion to those flicks’ quality. Take Ben Hur, for example, a fine film which probably did more for rowing, chariot racing and little leather centurion outfits at the Mardi Gras parade than Christianity, despite the neat plot device that sees the hero’s leprous mother and sister restored in the final scenes to full health by the alleged Messiah.
