Did He Watch the Same Movie?

A Hidden Life Hides Too Much of Franz Jägerstätter's Life by Shawn Storer

I found the movie addressed everything that was supposedly missing or weak in his critique, but perhaps he wanted everything spelled out explicitly rather than artistically and through association.
The real life figure who was evocative of Revelation’s triumphant Lion of Judah—who comforts, encourages, and shows the way—is rendered in the film as a docile, existentialist lamb led to slaughter.

I didn't see the portrayal as contradictory -- rather it is multifaceted, as it should be, and this image of the Lion of Judah was apparent, too.

Whatever is received is received according to the mode of the receiver.
