God's Angry Man (1980)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Werner Herzog documentary about teleangelist Gene Scott who came under fire by the FCC in the late 1970s. Scott is certainly a strange character and Herzog does a good job at showing how much power this guy had over his viewers and he's also honest in showing why the FCC and others would come after him. The only somewhat annoying thing really isn't the films's fault but in the interview clips Scott will be speaking in English and then Herzog will narrate, in German, just what he said and this goes on throughout the documentary.
