A Terrible Movie
20 June 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a complete waste of time. Diane uses "street people" (people chosen at random) to ask a scant few questions about their personal beliefs on Heaven. She might as well had interviewed people in a mental ward. The few theologists that she interviews are never allowed to show any intelligence. The atheistic/agnostic viewpoints are also shot to hell. Between the Q&A mini interviews we are bombarded by black and white cuts from old 1930's sci-fi and a man's voice screaming "Are you afraid to die?".

I would have preferred to have watched a serious debate between top notch doctors of theology and atheism. Most believers in God and Heaven will see this as poor representation of their beliefs, while the rest might pass the whole movie off as satire. Atheists and agnostic people probably won't waste their time let alone get past the title. If you edit out or fast forward through the b&w clips of nonsense the interviews last about 40 minutes.
