Abstract: The formats of spirituality in the latest movie can be inscribed into the trend of reinterpretations of the main categories of the modern culture dealt with nowadays. Referring to the observations made by philosophers, theoreticians of culture and specialists in religious studies, the author of the book outlines a map of interdependences between modern and most characteristic attitudes towards the issues of a widely-understood spirituality and certain tendencies present in the latest movie (until 2010). On the Polish publishing ground, it is one of the fewest propositions dealing with such topics, and certainly the only one covering such a broad spectrum of issues. Relating to such phenomena as gnosis, New Age, individual epiphanies or the ethics of authenticity, the author discusses both the status of a modern religious movie (including the phenomena such as The Passion by Mel Gibson), and the realizations of various formats of spirituality in a postmodernist movie (from Matrix trilogy to Tim Burton’s works). The examples in question concern an artistic movie (among others The Religion Hour, Agora, Hadewijch, Lourdes, Silent Light) and a popular one (The End of the Affair, Forrest Gump, The Nativity Story). The author’s interest reaches both the movie of the West, as well as Far-and Middle- East (among others works by Kim Ki-duk, and Apichatpong Weerasethakul), paying attention to not only renowned movie authors (Jim Jarmusch, Wim Wenders, Darren Aronofsky, Andriej Zwiagincew), but also experimentators (Ron Fricke) and works considered as being controversial (Fanatic).
