On this week’s Reel Spirituality Podcast, we continue our Story and Study segments in earnest by discussing Ryan Coogler’s Fruitvale Station and the here-today-gone-from-our-cinemas-tomorrow (at least in 2011) quilt-of-NYC-denizens-facing-crisis melodrama Margaret, respectively. Also, in our Sizzle segment, A.C. Neel, Jonathan Stoner, and Elijah Davidson hop a Metro train to USC to see Terrence Malick’s science center extravaganza, Voyage of Time: The IMAX Experience.
