Best Spiritual Movies

Here is my list of the best spiritual movies. Though movies offer a powerful combination of music, story, and visuals, it’s rare they rise to become truly profound.  Here I attempt carve out the profound from the spiritual, as I’m tasked with distinguishing this list from the massive collection at the Spirituality & Practice site which lumps 1917, Toy Story 4, and eco-documentaries under the banner of spiritual films.   

I consider inspirational movies a different category than spiritualbest spiritual movies moves, so you won’t find Remember the Titans on this list although I love it!

Most of these spiritual films date from the 1990s and early 2000s. While I’ve seen a number of recent films that sounded intriguing, they ultimately proved more entertaining than spiritual.  Feel free to leave suggestions in the comments.

I’ve split the list into 5-star and 4-star ratings.  Here is an overview of the best spiritual movies and TV series or two, along with links to the reviews.
