More on the Duns Scotus Movie

Here.  Apparently Ignatius press will start selling the film in October.

Another Italian production. Are you planning to watch it?

If it goes on netflix I will. It won a bunch of awards at the Vatican film festival recently, though I don't know what the competition was.

From the blurb it looks like they're hyping up the brief (1303-4) exile into most of the movie.

I really hope there's some good thinking montages. I want to see Blessed John on the stone floor with his knees tucked up to his ears, grasping his head desperately, crying out, "Two kinds of distinction aren't enough . . . real distinction . . . rational distinction . . . there - must - be - another - way!" with swelling music, and then, through a stained-glass window: the sunrise.

And don't forget the buried-alive-while-thinking-cum-beheading scene.

Oh my gosh, Michael! I was frickin dying when I read your retelling of how Scotus actually came upon the formal distinction. Excellent work!
I love this blog.
