Movies have a unique ability to provoke profound contemplation on existential and spiritual matters, leading viewers to ponder the concept of God. Filmmakers often use visual and narrative mediums to explore questions about faith, purpose, and the human condition. Whether through allegorical tales, philosophical discussions, or the portrayal of transcendent experiences, movies can catalyze introspection and open a space for viewers to grapple with their beliefs.
In certain films, the exploration of moral dilemmas, the search for meaning, or portraying extraordinary events can evoke a sense of the divine. The cinematic medium allows for depicting mystical or supernatural elements that prompt audiences to reflect on the mysteries of existence. Through powerful storytelling and compelling visuals, movies can stimulate discussions about spirituality, ethics, and the interconnectedness of life, encouraging viewers to engage with questions that resonate with the concept of God and the metaphysical aspects of human existence.
The Shift completely nails it. I could feel the message they were trying to convey, and the cast could too. Neal McDonough as The Benefactor was his best role yet. He was The Benefactor. He made the character! That was a joy to watch. His scenes were my favorite of the whole movie. Kristoffer Polaha as Kevin was just as good but in the opposite way. His character struggles but never gives up. They were both a joy to watch.
I highly recommend this movie, my fingers are crossed that it receives the praise it deserves.
About The Peetimes: I have 2 Peetimes for you. I strongly urge you to use the 1st Peetime, the rest of the movie has such a strong message that trying to summarize it is almost impossible.

RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.
Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.
