The Apostle (1997) One of the most reverential and human films about the subject of religion, Robert Duvall’s The Apostle has rightfully earned its place on the List of Perfect Movies. This is a film about real people, told by an actor with a keen eye. A film that can be enjoyed equally by the religious as well as the secular.
The Iron Giant (1999) "SOULS DON'T DIE..." Brad Bird, now best known for his film The Incredibles, created this beautiful, poignant, and emotionally charged animated film in 1999. A film with a lesson, but not the tripe the studios had been dishing out. But slowly, as with so many of the enduring cinema classics, The Iron Giant has begun to find its audience: people who are taking this film to heart and give it the place it deserves in the pantheon of Perfect Movies.
