Over at the blogsite Aggie Catholics, they've run a list of the top fifty Catholic movies, by which they do not necessarily mean movies that are explicitly about Catholics, but rather movies that somehow reflect a Catholic view of the world and man's place in it.  Most of the movies listed are rather recent for my taste – "recent" being anything later than The Godfather.  I was struck by the absence of a single movie directed by John Ford, for my money the greatest English-language director ever, and a man whose imagination was profoundly Christian and Catholic (and, I might add, anti-modernist), and only one movie by Frank Capra, the one to be expected — It's a Wonderful Life.  So I'm asking all you out there, what movies would you include on a list of the top 50 Christian movies of all time?  Again, it doesn't mean that the movie is explicitly religious, but rather that a Christian view of the world informs the whole.  Here is my list, unranked:

1. The Passion of the Christ

2. Jesus of Nazareth

3. Ben-Hur (William Wyler's version)
