It's been years since I've seen this film, but its images are burned into my mind. This is such a powerful movie that I would offer a caution to potential viewers -- the material is both gripping and frightening, and you'll never view certain 'organizations' as harmless ever again.
Nick Mancuso and R. H. Thompson both give the performances of their careers in this film, especially Mancuso. Unlike the rest of his work, he seems completely without self-consciousness here. Saul Rubinek also shines brilliantly. The two best performances may be Kim Cattrall and Meg Foster's, who give two different aspects of people who have lost their souls and who more than anyone else convey the danger facing Mancuso's character. Scariest moment in the film: Mancuso in a 'prayer meeting', thrusting his arms upward, shouting and staring with blank rage. You may even see some parallels in today's world in that scene.
Recommended in the strongest terms. 10/10
