George Burn is a treasure
2 March 2005 | by (Longmeadow, MA) – See all my reviews

There's one reason to see this movie, and that's the awesome double performance of George Burns as God and Satan (named "Hotep"). George Burns is deliciously nasty as the devil incarnate, determined to ensnare the soul of struggling musician Ted Wass. George Burns also does a nice job of playing God, portraying that sense of infinite wisdom God would inevitably have. For his credit, Ted Wass nicely portrays the sense of confusion and bewilderment you expect somebody to have once they found out they caused a tug-of-war between God and the Devil. I liked the movie's theme of how God seems to never get out as much as Satan does. Which makes sense, It's much less work selling your soul to the devil that it is to sell it to god (and Satan's not nearly as picky about the quality of the material). I also liked how Satan was a much sharper dresser than God (an obviously reference to how Satan tries to look attractive to lure people towards him). I it's interesting that God and Satan are the only two characters who directly address the audience, as if no mere mortal character is powerful enough to address the audience.

My grade (out of 4 stars): 3 1/2 Stars
