A wonderfully entertaining look at Heaven through the eyes of those who believe in the fairy tale. Diane sets up her interviews in interesting mini-sets, and chooses her interviewees carefully and for a specific reason, which becomes clear when watching the movie. The film quality is grainy, and there are classic edited portions of movies from the early black and white era, but it adds to the affect. This is really a cult classic, and will be re-discovered in a few years for sure.
Why not rent it now. (I found a used laserdisc on ebay) Hopefully it will be re-released on DVD, with directors commentary. I would love to see follow-up interviews with some of the folks.
