I’m so grateful that one of our ex-guest-bloggers, greg.org, gratefully took the opportunity to bear his testimony about Napoleon Dynamite, a Rushmore-esque indie film by Mormon writer and director Jared Hess. Check out greg.org’s remarks here.

    I’ve seen it, and it’s everything they say and more.

    I’ve linked to a site with half a dozen rather funny clips from the movie over at OT. For those of us who were painfully nerdy in high school, and/or come from very small rural Western towns (ND is set in Preston, Idaho), we laugh… only to keep from crying… :)

    Thanks for the link. I feel like I’m being fellowshipped with weblog traffic back into full T&S activity. Thank you, brothers and sisters.

    Stephen Hunter at the Washington Post gives it a very good review. See http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A50969-2004Jun17.html

    Of course, he calls it “funny as hell” — is that a good thing or a bad thing for the Mormon reader?
