Matthias Stork: Chaos Cinema/Classical Cinema part 1

Matthias Stork is more likely to be found hunched over a research desk at the Academy’s Margaret Herrick Library than in the darker recesses of a multiplex cinema playing the latest Hollywood visual effects laden action flick. He is, after all, a graduate student in the Department of Film and Television at UCLA. He has an M.A. in Education from Goethe University, Frankfurt, in his native Germany. His current focus is on German expressionist films of the 1920s.

DEEP FOCUS: Michael Tolkin's THE RAPTURE (1991)

We each have our own image of God, whether it was formed from reading the Bible or just having the notion that he is a nonexistent, mythical figure. Michael Tolkin's 1991 film The Rapture challenges all those perceptions and forces us to consider who God really is. It's the story of a truly spiritual -- and, more importantly, intellectual -- awakening.
