Thanks to Jiza, I found out that Babies is now available instantly on Netflix.
In our house Netflix is most definitely Josh’s domain and I rarely watch anything without him. So we watched Babies together.
I loved it. I wholeheartedly recommend it with only two caveats:
It is about as exciting as Into Great Silence. Which is to say, not really exciting at all. It is wonderful and beautiful, but c’mon, it does not have a plot at all… other than the deepest meaning of life and all that.
It features breasts, the source of babies’ food. It is a great example of the sort of Catholic modesty which John Paul II promoted, but if you subscribe to the American form of “objective” standards of modesty where breasts are seen primarily as objects of sexual pleasure, then several parts of Babies will be offensive.
Have you seen Babies? What did you think of it?

I haven’t seen it yet. I want to see it. Badly. And obviously the breast part isn’t offensive to me in the least. I’m actually excited to hear they did it that way.
Thanks for the warning. I’ll have to watch it when I’m not in seminary so as not to scandalize certain brothers. God bless!
I loved the movie, which I told you on twitter, but I just felt like responding here as well Now on a serious note, I do agree that it is much more of “lets all look at nothing at babies for 1 1/2 hours” (Not that I have a problem with that, since I love babies ) than an actual movie…
My mom bought this for me for my birthday and I LOVED it as well! So facinating!
Oh, I can’t wait to see this!
Okay, now I *really* need to see it.
(I don’t understand why breastfeeding is so offensive. There used to be a restaurant in downtown Austin that had a “breastfeeding friendly” sign hanging outside.)
