2. Dogma (1999)
Despite its overlong runtime, sharp tonal shifts, and poor pacing, Dogma stays one in all Kevin Smith’s smartest, boldest, most impressed movies, notably following its Catholic church controversy. With its all-star ensemble, together with Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Chris Rock, Alan Rickman, and Selma Hayek, and its finally more-devout-than-not take a look at faith (regardless of its fixed irreverence in any other case), Dogma blends Smith’s lowbrow comedy along with his intelligent, unsuspecting intellectualism to provide an entertaining, involving portrait of religion in a corrupt world.
If you were not already on board with the View Askewniverse, this is not the place to start out. But it is one in all Smith’s most spectacular, commendable works, discovering methods to steadiness heady conversations about one’s place within the universe with an prolonged combat sequence involving a poop monster. Plus, Alanis Morissette performs God herself. What extra may anybody need?
