Top redeeming films of 2006 list

Christianity Today’s movie review crew (which includes favs-of-this-blog Jeffrey Overstreet and Peter Chattaway) has released their list of The 10 Most Redeeming Films of 2006. And what do they mean by “redeeming” films?
They're all stories of redemption—sometimes blatantly, sometimes less so. Several of them literally have a character that represents a redeemer; one even includes the Redeemer. With others, you might have to look a bit harder for the redemptive thread, but it's certainly there. Some are "feel-good" movies that leave a smile on your face; some might leave you uncomfortable, even disturbed, and asking, "How should I process that?" But you won't be able to shake it from your memory, either.
Check it out—and make sure to scroll all the way down through the list at the bottom of “The Ones That Got Away.” Arg. As if my Netflix queue wasn’t already too long.
