US Bishops place two NZ films in their Top Ten
On the choice of films the Bishops have selected this year, Gerri Pare, Director the US Bishops' Office for Film and Broadcasting (OFB) said: "Although 2003 saw its share of over-hyped sequels and pointless remakes, mindless action pictures and witless comedies, there were some truly exceptional films, reminding us that movies have the power to inspire and uplift rather than just dehumanize and debase."
