I saw this film a couple of years back at the Seattle International Film Festival. Since then I've wanted to see it again, but it has yet to be released.
This gentle paced, atmospheric film chronicles the rise and fall of a contemporary Jesus. It highlights the sheer humanity of this reluctant "savior" while bringing up the issue of truth and what institutions will do when threatened by it. "Second Coming" is not afraid to ask difficult questions and is as cathartic as it is challenging. This is the most intelligent film on the subject matter since "Jesus of Montreal." Through this film, Darren Campbell shows his excellence as a writer, director, and actor. I'm looking forward to seeing more of his work. It is my hope that "Second Coming" will be given a wider release, or at least be made available on DVD. This film deserves to be seen.
