‘Cripta’ ~ CFDb Movie Review
A video-game approach with an online puzzle that six different teenagers try to solve when their professor disappears. The teen’s professor is replaced by a man with a split personality, who gives all these tests that must be answered correctly to save the professor.
This is the 2nd film I’ve seen of Marco’s and I love his style of filmmaking. I can’t quite explain why, but I’m always on the edge of my seat and I don’t want to pause the film, and I’m watching in Italian, with English Subtitles. It takes a lot to catch my attention like that, so that is saying something.
Although the ending had a spiritualistic edge, with a definite LDS doctrine, this still was a powerful film, with some great Bible truths in it.
Here were some highlights for me:
- Loved the teens – great fun watching them interact, and, as his other film, a bit goofy at time. Goofy fits for his films.
- Deception – sometimes the door you think is the obvious choice to enter, after prayer and reflection is NOT the right door. Great advice and truth in that statement.
- The man with the split personality really caused me to think a lot about the double minded man the Bible talks about in James 4:8 – Draw night to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double-minded, as well as James 1:8 – A double-minded man is unstable in all his ways. We all have to deal with double minded people, unfortunately sometimes it’s ourselves.
- Very interesting points for the questions and answers.
There are a few points we disagree with Scripturally, mostly the baptism for the dead, and spiritualism. Overall…enjoyable. As a result of this film, it led me to do some extensive studying about these points and for that I’m really grateful.
I Peter 3:15 – But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
Don’t miss the meekness and fear. There is far more condemnation and pride seen in a lot of responses towards LDS people. If we truly have the love of God in our hearts, then we’ll also have a burden for souls and if that is true, then we must show love instead of venom.
