Portrait of televangelist as human being
29 December 2005 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

This is a portrait of Dr Gene Scott a televangelist who ran into problems with the FCC in the late 1970's and early 1980's. Scott was eventually shut down, briefly, by the FCC. The documentary, which consists of little more than interviews with Scott and clips from his show, doesn't really deal with the reasons why the FCC was after him, rather it tries simply to show a man on a mission trying to save people while battling his inner demons.

This is an amazing one of a kind documentary that probably could only have been made by Werner Herzog. Herzog isn't interested in showing anything other than the man. There is no judgment as to what Scott is all about, there is just Scott talking to Herzog and to his audience. The result is a portrait of a man on a mission, who is doing what he feels to be right. The result is that you walk away from the film feeling that you've just met a real person and not a manufactured man of god.

If you can track this down its worth seeing. As with all of Herzog's documentaries you get to see something, or someone in a way that is very unexpected.
