The Catholic Tradition Podcast: 108


Jun 25, 2021

Thomas is joined by Catholic filmmaker Nathan Douglas to debate
Walker Percy’s first novel, The Moviegoer. They study
the malaise-ridden protagonist Binx Bolling’s “search” for that means,
which he finally finds by way of accountability: not the
accountability urged by respectable “values”, however that urged by
love.

In addition they have a look at how Binx searches for a deeper reference to
actuality by way of his moviegoing habits. Percy has some fascinating
descriptions of his characters discovering moments of transcendent
magnificence in movie, provided that this novel was written simply earlier than the
notion of “cinephilia” developed by French critics made its solution to
america.
