Theological Lenses: Tillich & Romanowski

Paul Tillich
How do you see Tillich's "method of correlation" and "ultimate concern" fitting into film studies?

Are there films that come to mind that exhibit his concepts of "conversion"?

Following Tillich's definition of faith (that which concerns us ultimately) what do you think he classifies as religious art?

William Romanowski's Cultural Typology
Using Romanowski's typology (Cultural Communication, Cultural Criticism, Social Unity, Collective Memory) share a list of films that you think fit under these headings and why. All typologies are artificial constructs, thus some films may easily fall under multiple headings.
