The Infiltrator

While it has its share of gunplay and property damage, Brad Furman's fact-inspired The Infiltrator earns its chills not by pummeling the audience with violence but by gently reminding viewers that some businesses only offer permanent severance packages.

On Christianity

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: When I was younger I did some pretty bad things, and the older I get the more guilty I feel over them. I want to ask God for forgiveness, but I haven't because I honestly don't believe He'll forgive me. Why should He? I can't even forgive myself.
