Ok, fast: what is your favorite director? And his/her religion? I don’t like films about religion, but I don’t care about the religious affiliation of movie directors, if this doesn’t influence the film in general. Does anyone care about it? Indeed, some people do, as the Guide to Religious Movies shows. They have lists of religious or spiritual films, like Top 50 Greatest Jewish Movies and The 50 Best Catholic Movies of All Time; lists of religious affiliation of Most Influential People in History of Movies, of Top 25 Greatest Directors of all Time, Famous Actors and Actresses and the directors of 100 Best Movies according to TIME magazine.
The site has many other lists, individual pages for directors, actors, producers, pages for individual films about specific religious groups (Amish, Buddhism, Wicca, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Tibetan Buddhism, Latter-day Saints, Quakers, Baptist, Pentecostal, Protestant and Evangelical) and more links to lists of religious films. To have an idea of the religions listed on the site go to the Religious Affiliation Chart. Unfortunately I didn’t find a good list with atheism or agnosticism in films, but I found quiz (Agnostic and Atheistic Films).
