This may be the weirdest thing I’ve ever done. I was asked to give the keynote at GAiN, with the topic: ’Re:formation, Re:volution.’ Thinking outside the box, I decided to talk about Luther’s Mönchkalb and papal-ass, and about Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox. Blending Monster Theory and Ecclesiology, accompanied with some close readings of Mr. Fox, I drew some—hopefully interesting—applications for the contemporary Adventist church.

But I warn you: It’s a bit weird.


Disclaimer: This video contains, inter alia,  a commentary and criticism of Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr Fox, ©Twentieth Century Fox. For reasons of commentary and criticism I quote short clips from that work. The amount of the material quoted is no more than is necessary for the purpose of the review. I hold no rights to that material, and use it solely for academic, non-profit, critical purposes that fall under fair use. No copyright is claimed and to the extent that material may appear to be infringed, I assert that such alleged infringement is permissible under fair use principles in U.K., U.S. and other copyright laws.
