Very interesting look at cults
3 June 1999 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

Never before have I seen the world of cults shown in such a frighteningly realistic way. Michael O'Keefe is simply brilliant, with Brian Dennehy his match in every way. My only problem with this film would be the casting of Peter Fonda- I think he tried as hard as he could, but he simply did not seem right for the role. He also seemed a little bland. Personally, it would have been easier to believe if he was a hyper-er person, more enthralled with his purpose. And James Woods- he blew everyone AWAY! That man can act up a storm.
