The Western Genre + The Good, The Bad and The Ugly (PCCD 51)

Last month in our Facebook group guest host Terry Gant ran a poll asking about particular film genres' inherent capacity to either reveal the glory of God or obscure it.  This episode is the first step in giving that question a thorough answer.

We're starting that process by taking a look at the Western genre and then reviewing a classic film, The Good, the Bad, and The Ugly [1967].

In this Jeff and Terry:

(1) Identify the defining marks of the Western genre
(2) Detail the specific plot structures used in the genre
(3) Give a review worth of The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
(4) Nail down the ways this genre pushes viewers to see the glory of God as well as where it unhelpfully pushes back against a Christ-centered view of reality.

So let's get to it!  Hit that download button, press play, and let's get started on Ep. 51 of The Pop Culture Coram Deo Podcast!\
