After the Movie: Spotlight

WOW! Many exciting movies are coming out and I can’t keep up. I’m trying my best to see as many movies in cinema as I can. It’s a good way to entertain myself and I enjoy experiencing the big screen. The first time I saw Spotlight’s trailer, I didn’t want to see it but after seeing it the second, third and fourth time….I changed my mind. I went to see the movie and I like it!

It’s such a powerful movie. You will see the power of journalism. A great example of great reporters. I wish Thai journalists are working like that. Well, only in my dreams! We’re all have been hurt by not knowing the truth. These bad things still keep going and no one can get rid of it because some powerful people are behind it and try to cover it up. As a former Christian, the movie also hit me right in my face about faith in religion. I spent eight years in a church that has a pastor who slept with young girls (members of the church). He’s married but still sleeping around! After the truth had come out, I doubt it if I made the right decision getting involved with the church. The person who I admire, who taught me many things and who we should respect the most is the one who’s lying for years! It made me feel like everything I thought I believe in was a lie. The situations opened my eyes in many ways. I realized that church is a place for mad people (of course, I am one of them. LOL).  Or maybe it’s just this church? I don’t hate the church, but I don’t like some people there. I don’t like it when people pretend to be super holy, but they’re just an idiot!

There was one scene when Mike Rezendes went to talk to Sacha Pfeiffer at her house. It hits me hard. The things he said was exactly how I felt the first few years I stopped going to church. I’m not religious anymore, but I still believe in God. If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t be who I am today. Be careful of who you admire. They might have something bad hidden!
