After the invention of printing, no other technological creation exerted such a profound influence on culture as cinema. And we have to frankly admit that this influence has been and is, in many cases, a negative one. That is why a firm criteria of discernment is highly necessary. If we assume together with the Angelic Doctor that through a good movie we have to restore the strength of our souls and to support a virtuous life, it is easy to understand the basic rules of a wise discernment. No obscenities, no dirty words, no nudity, no gratuitous violence. But this is not all.
It is equally important that the films chosen have a truly excellent artistic quality. In other words, we do not encourage “kitsch” creations that do not honor the art of cinema. Of course, in some particular cases it can be debated if a movie is or not an “artistic” one. But, in any case, on the Eutrapelia website we will propose those movies that we consider to illustrate the “transcendental” attribute of God: beauty (Latin pulchritūdō).
