*** (out of 4) Herzog documentary about Reverend Huie (played by James Brown in The Blues Brothers), a loud, screaming, drooling preacher who brings soul to the Bible. This is a rather strange documentary because there's really nothing being told by the director. The camera just rolls as this guy preaches and he does a great job and keeps this thing entertaining but I'm really not sure what Herzog was trying to do other than film something.
You can buy this film from Herzog's website. Also there you will find many other Herzog films, some of which aren't available anywhere else.
