LOUISVILLE — Each year there is spirited discussion in the media about the nominations for the Oscars. This year, though the movie schedule was terribly disrupted by the pandemic, is no different.

Whereas most critics write about the worthy performances of the actors and the skills of the directors and other crew members, in this article you are invited to consider the ethical and, in a few cases, the spiritual values of the honored films. We will assume that all have artistic value on the basis of their nomination, but do they challenge and inform us about the values that shape the kind of human beings we are and the world, a world that too often ignores or even opposes those values?
