PAUSE FOR THOUGHT

On a recent trip to the cinema, I saw the film 'Joker'. There had been a fair amount of controversy surrounding it, so I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect. Whilst it is a film about the Joker, Batman’s famous nemesis, it’s a real departure from what I might have expected. There is little which links to the Marvel/DC films and certainly no fun-filled special effects.

 

'Joker' is a deeply powerful (and sometimes shocking) film about the human search for social acceptance in a world which is increasingly cruel and selfish. It’s also a study about the importance of kindness, one of the few virtues that shines through the film. So much so, that when I left the cinema, I felt acutely aware of my own lack of kindness at times.

The church really helps me put life in perspective, particularly when I've had a challenging week.
