If you love Gospel music...
6 May 2005 | by (Matawan, NJ) – See all my reviews

Bishop Jones is the next big thing in evangelism. I don't know if anyone's called him the next T.D. Jakes but its very possible he's on his way. Hoover Street Revival is a unique documentary that doesn't really have a narrative thread per se, but an intimate look into the lives of the people of South Central Los Angeles and how the Bishop interacts and affects them.

The director is Sophie Fiennes. Yes, those Fiennes. How many of them are there??? She covers a lot of different ground, from a few sermons, interviews and looks at the city and downtown LA. The best part of the film though is the gospel music. If you're a fan, it's full of great melodies and hymns that will keep you tapping your feet.

For anyone who likes the Woman Thou Art Looseds of the world, this is a "real-life" version to check out.
