shia on Fury
>I found God doing Fury. I became a Christian man, and not in a fucking bullshit way—in a very real way. I could have just said the prayers that were on the page. But it was a real thing that really saved me. And you can’t identify unless you’re really going through it. It’s a full-blown exchange of heart, a surrender of control. And while there’s beauty to that, acting is all about control. So that was a wild thing to navigate.
>There’s no rehearsed fight scenes. You’re getting punched in the face for real. There is no room for actors. It was like becoming Christian—you subject yourself to everything that’s coming. You relinquish everything.

any books with this feel, with this power, this potential to turn people to christianity, besides dostoyevsky or kierkegaard?

You realize he just said that shit because celebs are trying to make themselves look more "relatable" to hispaniard moviegoers, right? And hispaniards think whites are "atheists", which they find weird, so saying you became "born again" is just a PR thing.

Shia is enough of a flake to actually believe his own hype.

Scripture. Aquinas. Garrigou-Lagrange. Augustine (and by extension Plotinus). A lot of smarties have pondered God, and that should sway you, but honestly you will find Him in beauty, in charity, and in prayer. Read the NT and contemplate the passion and the divine sacrifice. It's probably the most remarkable mystery we have on the planet.

The ending of Buddenbrooks. While the book itself isn't about religion the ES IST SO at the end really shook me.

This. Ive read the final martyrs by endo and that really struck me with awe, when he's full of remorse and anxiety about fleeing and looking out at the sea at night and he hears Jesus voice talk to him. Fuck that gave me chills.

Just started reading Silence and his prose is Tolstoy tier realism, its a pageturner

I would guess being involved in that debauched porno movie probably had a lot to do with his conversion too.

Shia is a punk bitch. Me and plenty of hispaniards who have been in the Army know what it is to "relinquish control". He goes on set gets his bitchboi face punched, eats an Aleeve, puts on an icepack, cries on the phone to his agent or one of his thots, then he gets to cry some more about it during an interview. What a fucking self-important fraud.
>harrowing Hollywood movie set experience
imagine actually getting bullets shot at you and actually being blown into the dirt by actual IED shockwaves and actually seeing peoples' actual guts explode and actually shitting your pants and actually confronting death.
