The A&F Top 100 Website is DONE!

Recommended Posts

Dear A&Fers:

It is with great pleasure and pride that I announce the completion of the A&F Top 100 Films website.

http://artsandfaith.com/t100/

All 100 films have thoughtful, insightful commentaries along with a host of helpful features.

I am most grateful to all who have contributed to this project, from those who nominated and voted to those who wrote blurbs for the films.

In particular I'd like to single out our student intern, Nate Rogers, for his heroic labors on this project, and to Christy Edwall, another volunteer, for helping to get this off the ground.

Anna Johnson of the IMAGE staff has been indispensable to the success of this project.

Alan Thomas was the driving force behind this list for many years and deserves our profound gratitude.

Cue the writing credits:

Edward Allie

Darryl A. Armstrong

Peter T. Chattaway

"What if--just what if--the very act of storytelling is itself redemptive? What if gathering up the scraps and fragments of a disordered life and binding them between the pages of a book in all of their fragmentary disorder is itself a gambit against that disorder?" -- NBooth

This is the first time in the history of A&F that all 100 films have blurbs.

Thanks for being patient with us and all your encouragement in the process, Greg. And thanks to you and the whole crew for your hard work! You RULE!

Man, everything has been said but her I go anyway...

Thanks Greg for the gentle kicks to get the blurbs done and thank you to all the staff who managed the project and made sure it was up for all to see, read, and interact with.

It is a good thing! A beautiful work!

Heh. I had to read that twice before I realized you didn't say "You are almost kind." :)


"Sympathy must precede belligerence. First I must understand the other, as it were, from the inside; then I can critique it from the outside. So many people skip right to the latter." -- Steven D. Greydanus
