"Everything preserved renews creation."
First Reformed is a transformative film experience. It doesn't just inspire self-reflection, it demands it. During and after the film, I found myself moved to intense emotions, thinking about my own journey of faith, where I am taken by despair, and what I seek out so that I may feel filled with life.
This is not just the best film of 2018 so far, but one of the best of the decade.
